One of Central Florida’s most celebrated harbingers of spring will celebrate its 64th year, March 17, 18, 19, 2023. The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival is one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious juried fine art shows. It consistently ranks among the most highly regarded outdoor art shows in the nation and its artists compete for one of the largest cash awards ($76,500) among the top shows. Additionally, the enthusiastic Patrons Program is expected to spend more than $85,000 in Art Bucks this year.The show is located in the heart of Winter Park, Florida, a beautifully landscaped area whose surrounding streets are closed during the Festival to allow for foot traffic only. Artists’ booths nestle under large oak trees in Central Park and line Winter Park’s historic Park Avenue, a quaint and charming downtown area with brick streets, unique boutique shops, and inviting outdoor cafes and bistros.Attendance usually reaches 250,000 or more for the three-day festival, which is one of Central Florida’s largest outdoor events. This year over 200 fine artists have been selected for participation, chosen from close to 1100 national and international applications. Along with these juried fine artists and four emerging artists, the festival features concerts in Central Park, a wide variety of food and beverages, a large display of outstanding art from local schools and interactive art activities for the kids guided by local museums.
