The Virtual Festival will also include the Leon Theodore Schools Exhibit featuring amazing artwork from students throughout Orange County. The Children’s Workshop will be on-line too. Area museums will participate with virtual art projects for the kids, including craft kits that can be picked upon Saturday March 20 at the stage in Winter Park’s north Central Park and completed with on-line instructions.

The tradition continues May 14, 15, and 16 at the in-person event. The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival is one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious juried fine art shows. It is ranked among the most highly regarded outdoor art shows in the nation and its artists compete for one of the largest cash awards ($74,500) among the top shows.

The Festival features original artwork that has been designed and executed by the exhibiting artists during the past two years. The show is held in historic downtown Winter Park, a beautifully landscaped area whose surrounding streets are closed during the Festival to allow for foot traffic only. Artists’ booths nestle under large oak trees in Central Park and line Park Avenue in the heart of this charming downtown with brick streets, unique boutique shops, and inviting outdoor cafes and bistros.

In keeping with COVID-19 guidelines, the event may look a little different this year, but rest assured that the Festival is taking the all of the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and successful experience for all of our artists, volunteers and art lovers.
