The 64th Annual Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival is one of the nation's oldest, largest, and most prestigious juried fine art festivals. It's also one of the nation's most profitable for artists, positioned at #3 in Art Fair SourceBook's 2020 festival rankings and #6 in Sunshine Artist's Top 200 from 2010-2020, a 10-year ranking of the nation's most profitable art shows. In ArtFairCalendar's ranking of Best Art Fairs, we rank #6 in America and #1 in the South.

The Festival debuted in March 1960 as a community project and is still produced today by an all-volunteer board that puts an emphasis on meeting the needs of the artists.

Set in a beautiful, historic downtown setting, the festival draws approximatey 300,000 art-loving visitors. Over 1000 fine artists from around the world apply yearly to this highly competitive and very popular show. An independent panel of three judges will select the 210 fine artists and three emerging artists invited to exhibit their works.
