Hannibal Square Heritage Center Folk and Urban Art Festival

Sat., March 28, 10 a.m.

One week after the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival closes, another art festival sets up in downtown Winter Park. This one, however, is as much a celebration of the process of making art as it is of the art itself. Work from more than 25 artists, many of them artists of color from diverse backgrounds, will be on display during the festival, representing both the old school and the new guard. Take in the serene, stylized landscapes of members of the Highwaymen as well as the gritty street art of members of the B-Side Artists Collective; participate in a workshop on Japanese shibori dip-dyeing; and catch New York artist Rigoberto Torres’ life-casting sculpture demonstration. As always, there will be live music, food trucks serving Southern soul food, vendors and more. And the best part is that you can indulge in all of this good stuff for free. free

What Is the Electric Car? Book Signing and Event

Sat., March 28, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

If you’re one of the lucky ones who’s gotten to take a ride in a Tesla Model S, you know how exhilarating a ride in an electric vehicle can be. Or maybe you’ve seen the 2010 documentary What Is the Electric Car? and want to check one out for yourself. With the release of a companion book of the same name – consisting of essays about electric vehicles by people like Jay Leno, Ed Begley Jr., Larry Hagman and Fabio, among others – the folks promoting “EVs” as a viable alternative to internal combustion-fueled pollution-mobiles are taking their passion, well, on the road. Stop by the Winter Park Public Library to meet some of the authors (no names have been confirmed) and have them sign a copy of the book for you, then check out the Electric Driveway Party, where you’ll be able to get up close and personal with the cars of the future, which is actually the present. free
