The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce presents the 40th Annual Winter Park Autumn Art Festival on October 12th through October 13th, located in Central Park of the downtown Winter Park, FL area. The Art Festival is a great opportunity to engage with your local community and support the work of Florida artists by coming out and having a great time.

Categories of art included will be ceramics, drawing and graphics, fiber, fine crafts, jewelry, and paintings of all media. The festival will also feature live music and entertainment provided by various bands and orchestral groups.
For families with small children, this event is perfect for exposing kids to the arts. Not only can children be inspired by the work of other artists, but The Crealdé School of Art will feature free arts workshops for children ages 5 and up to explore their own creativity. From 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday and 11:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday, children can work with clay building, oil pastels, colored markers and pencils. The best part about the festival is the entire event is free for everyone to enjoy.
“Introducing children to art as young as possible is vitally important because the younger the child, the more uninhibited their imagination and creativity. If you can instill in them a love of art while their creativity and imagination knows no bounds, then you’ve hooked them for life,” stated Jan Hurt, Registrar and Office Manager for the Crealdé School of Art.
Official posters, tote bags, t-shirts and other merchandise of the Autumn Art Festival will be available to purchase during the two-day festival. A portion of the proceeds from official merchandise will be donated to Central Florida Veteran’s Memorial Park Foundation.
