This weekend is the 56th Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival. It is one of the nation’s oldest, largest and most prestigious juried outdoor art festivals. The very first festival was held on Park Avenue in 1960 by a handful of local art enthusiasts and featured 90 exhibiting artists. Over the years the festival has grown so much and currently features 225 artists and is held on Park Avenue and in Central Park.
It is a great way to spend the weekend; Winter Park already has so much to offer, this just adds to it! But let’s be honest, Winter Park doesn’t really have the best parking availability on a non-festival weekend so you can only imagine what it will be like with an event that has over 350,000 attendees! So this year SunRail has stepped in and is offering FREE service into Winter Park! They have a set schedule for the festival here, take advantage, and make a day of it!
