9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 10-11 | Central Park, North Park Avenue and West Morse Boulevard, Winter Park | 407-644-8281 | winterpark.org
The cream of Florida’s artistic crop flock to Central Park this weekend for the 42nd annual Winter Park Autumn Art Festival. More than 180 artists were selected to showcase their work in a variety of formats ranging from painting to ceramics to 3-D mixed media, a new category for the festival. Entertainment is in abundance with an eclectic mix of musical talent playing throughout the day, such as the UCF Flying Horse Big Band, a jazz ensemble that reworks some of the greats from the Beatles and Van Morrison, and many Park Avenue restaurants will be in attendance to provide festivalgoers with some grub as they walk around Central Park. Even though it’s an autumn festival, this is still Florida, so things are going to get hot. If you want to cool down with a brew, Florida Distributing Co. has you covered with a beer garden where you can sample some of their seasonal beers.
