SPONSORED: On the weekend of October 13 and 14, the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce will bring more than 180 artists from all over the state to showcase their paintings, pottery, sculpture, and more for their 45th Annual Winter Park Autumn Art Festival.
Billed as “Fine Art, Florida, Family Fun,” the sidewalk show presents quality art and live entertainment in a family-friendly atmosphere. Visitors can stroll along and visit the artist booths that will line Central Park along Park Avenue. All of the local shops and restaurants will also be open.
Crealde School of Art will be offering free workshops for children ages 4 and up on both days of the festival.
