Central Florida art festivals are held each year in many towns and cities of the region, including Orlando, Winter Park, Lake Buena Vista, Ocala, Winter Haven, Leesburg and Mount Dora.

I have attended hundreds of these festivals over my years in Florida, and have enjoyed every single one of them.

Most of the stuff from my modest Florida art collection was purchased at Florida art shows.

Many of my music CD's were purchased at Florida festivals.

This is a partial list of annual art festivals, art shows, folk festivals and other outdoor events in Central Florida arranged by month.
