Downtown Winter Park assumed its yearly role as the bright center of the Central Florida art community as the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival kicked off its 64th event on Friday, March 17. The list of 215 attending artists was selected from more than 1,000 applications from around the world and included more than 30 first-time exhibitors.
An estimated 250,000 visitors attend the weekend-long event with many splitting their time between art appreciation, retail therapy, and restaurant exploration. Street closures allowed for expanded outdoor dining options that proved popular as St. Patrick’s Day happened to coincide with the first day of the festival.
