Festival of the Masters Celebrates Art at Downtown Disney This Weekend

One thing Orlando is not short of is art festivals. But one of my favorites is the annual Festival of the Masters held at Downtown Disney.

This weekend, November 12-14, is the 35th incarnation of the event and the sidewalks of Downtown Disney will be lined with tents featuring hundreds of artists.

Working in a variety of mediums, most of the art is actually for sale, so not only can you admire the works, but you can also get some Christmas shopping out of the way with a one-of-a-kind handmade gift.

The event also has live entertainment and several family-friendly activities.

The best part? Admission and parking are free.
