Pasco County's Office of Tourism Development is proud of our community and proud of our civic minded citizens that volunteer their time to plan, prepare and execute fun and quirky events to raise money and raise awareness of Pasco County as a great place to visit. From Dade City's annual Kumquat Festival to Caliente's Bare Dare 5 K or New Port Richey's Chasco Fiesta-we have found that "Quirky works" in a community full of rich history and colorful characters.
