Orlando Events


If you have traveled through Downtown Orlando I’m sure you’ve noticed the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.  Maybe it was only concrete and steel when you first saw it but it is now a building of pure wonderment.  33,000 square feet, it spans two blocks and takes up almost nine acres of downtown. And now is your chance to step inside and experience it all for yourself.  Saturday November 8th starts their community open house.  Guests can meander through the Della Phillips Grand Lobby, the Walt Disney Theater, the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater and the Seneff Arts Plaza. Along the way be sure to stop for photo ops and pick up tickets to upcoming shows and events!  This is a family friendly event so bring everyone out to take in the beauty of this new building!

The community open house is from noon until 6pm but you don’t want to go too far afterwards because at 8pm there is a free concert.  The concert is celebrating the opening of the Dr. Phillips Center and the Seneff Arts Plaza and it is starring Cheryl Crow!  Can you believe it?!  A free Cheryl Crow concert right in Downtown Orlando, how cool is that?!  And if you aren’t able to make it out to Saturday’s community open house don’t worry, they’re doing it again on Sunday.  But on Sunday you’ll have the option to upgrade to a $30 ticket that will get you access to a private facility with high top tables and chairs, lunch from Bubbalou’s Bodacious BBQ and three drink tickets.  Sunday hours are noon to 4pm, exploring on your own is still free!

We love that Orlando is recognizing itself as a creative city, and it is events like Creative City Project that really prove that to be true.

On Saturday, November 1st, you can walk around Downtown Orlando and experience dozens of performances from artists like The Cook Trio to professional organizations like Cirque du Soleil.  These artists, and many more,  will be scattered throughout the city performing in public spaces like Orange County History Center, Chase Plaza, multiple art galleries, Orange Ave, Pine St. and more.

All different artists coming together to promote creativity and share their love for their art is truly an amazing thing and should not be missed.

They’ve made it easy,  maps are being handed out that list the time and place of each performance, hours are 7-11pm and it is FREE. Yes, you read that correctly, FREE.  So grab your family and friends and see what Orlando creatives have to offer,  you will not be disappointed!

Magic, it always irritated me more than it impressed me.  I could never understand why people found it so amazing when you knew it was all just an illusion. But this isn’t about me; it’s about you and finding unique things to do in our wonderful city!  How about this one, Magic Mansion, intrigued? I thought you would be and I must admit that I am as well.  Being able to walk through a historic mansion and seeing up close magic does sound kind of…well…magical.

For 4 nights only the Historic Dr. Phillips House will be hosting Magic Mansion: An Interactive Close-Up Magic Experience.   Featuring the Official Magicians of the Orlando Magic as well as other performers, all that were personally selected by Kostya Kimlat.  Kimlat is a world renowned entertainer and magician who founded SeeMagicLive, which creates customized magic presentations around the world.

The Mansion will be open from 6-10pm, you can come as you please but allow yourself a few hours to explore the mansion and experience all of the wonderment that these magicians have to offer.  Complimentary parking upon arrival and food and drinks will be available for purchase.

211 N. Lurcerne Cir. E

They’re coming to get you, Orlando.

This year marks the 6th annual Zombietoberfest, the coolest Zombie festival around and right here in our own backyard on the streets of APGD.  Are you excited?  Are you frightened?  Are you going?!

We can all agree that zombies are a nuisance, right? So do your part to stop the outbreak by joining the Zombie Outbreak Cure Scavenger Hunt from 2 to 6pm, grab some friends, meet at Blue Bird Bake Shop at 2pm and go catch yourself some zombies!  If you prefer to befriend some zombies over stopping them then be sure to head on over to Warrior One Power Yoga where all Zombies can enjoy free yoga at 5pm.   Then at 6 the streets come alive, or dead, however you want to look at it.  Either way, bring your appetite because food trucks will be there serving…BRAINS!  Brains for dinner, brains for lunch, brains for breakfast, brains for brunch…nah, we’re just kidding!  There will be food trucks but they won’t be serving brains, just their specialties, which are probably much tastier then brains anyway.   Costume contests, live music, a zombie crawl, movies, kids activities, the list goes on!  One of the most fun, family friendly Halloween events that you will find!  So fun, in fact, that the Orlando Weekly declares it as one of their Top 100 Things to Do in Orlando Before You Die.  You can find all the gory details here, here and here (for merch and tickets, where required).

Saturday, October 4th

2-6pm:  Zombie Outbreak Scavenger Hunt

5pm: Yoga for Zombies

6-10pm:  Zombietoberfest on the streets begins!
