Description

The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival is one of the oldest, biggest and most prestigious juried outdoor art festivals in the United States. It is consistently placed among the top events by Sunshine Artist Magazine. Started in 1950, the festival nowadays manages to attract more than 1,200 American and international artists who apply each year. Not surprisingly, the average attendance of the festival is in excess of 350,000 people annually, which makes the festival one of the most influential art-related events in Central Florida. The featured artwork represents a wide array of categories, including clay, digital art, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, painting, photography, sculpture, wood and others. Founded as a resort by rich New England industrialists in the late 19th century, Winter Park is the first centrally planned settlement in Florida, and as such, boasts a scenic center with a liberal arts college, museums, historic cemetery, art galleries, and public civic buildings, many of which are more than a century old. The Sidewalk festival is a great chance both for art lovers and others to spend a three-day weekend going back in time to a quaint historical Florida town while enjoying the beautiful March weather and browsing exquisite artwork.
