Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival returns for its 63rd year this weekend | Things to do | Orlando
One of the oldest and largest outdoor arts festivals in the country is back for its 63rd year.
The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival is a free event that kicks off today (March 18) and will run until March 20. On Friday and Saturday, the art festival starts from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
About 900 international artists have applied to participate in this year’s festival. There will be a variety of fine arts and crafts: 3-D media, photography, digital art in clay, glass, graphics, and more.
Along with the artwork, guests can enjoy and relax with performances by Flint Blade, Renato and Giani, Paint it Black, Patchouli, David & Eli, The Fly Casuals and other artists.
The festival will have a variety of food vendors and there are many local cafes and restaurants in the area like 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Agave Azul, Another Broken Egg, Antonella’s Pizzeria, and others. There will be merchandise tents selling souvenirs and WPSAF t-shirts.
The little ones can also enjoy their party time at the ‘children’s workshop’. Children will be able to create their own work of art and take it home for free.
The WPSAF got its start in March 1960. It began as a community project that brought together artists and art lovers from around the world. About 350,000 guests attend each year and it is run by many local volunteers.
