Downtown Kissimmee to Host Arts, Crafts and Antiques Festival November 19-20

Now that the weather has turned cooler and we’re looking right squarely at the Christmas shopping season just on the horizon, it seems the right time for downtown Kissimmee to play host to another festival.

The city will do just that the weekend of November 19 and 20, 2011, with the Downtown Kissimmee Arts, Crafts and Antiques Festival.

The event will run from 9am to 4pm each day and feature live music, street painting, gourmet food trucks & vendors (so far The Flattery, C&S Brisket Bus and the Gastro Truck have confirmed they will be there), and over 70 artists and craft makers selling their wares. Many of Kissimmee’s downtown stores will be holding sidewalk sales, as well.

There will also be guided sculpture tours at 10am and 1pm, along with guided historic walking tours of downtown Kissimmee.

This free event is family friendly, making it a great way to spend the day.

The night before, on Friday, November 18, Kissimmee will also hold their monthly Flicks on the Bricks event, with this month’s theme being football. Come on down for free family games and a showing of the kid-friendly flick, Little Giants. The event has been moved to Mill Run Park for the month (corner of Mill Run Blvd and Mill Slough Road). The event starts at 6pm.

27th Annual Mount Dora Craft Fair Slated for October 22 and 23, 2011

Mount Dora is known for its charm and antiquing, but one of the biggest draws to this historic community just northwest of Orlando is its annual craft fair, which draws over 325,000 visitors.

The event takes place October 22 and 23 at Donnelly Park in downtown Mount Dora, from 9am to 6pm on Saturday, and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the Mount Dora Craft Fair and there will be over 350 artists and craft vendors in attendance. This is a great opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping.

Both days will also feature live entertainment from local musicians like Hindu Cowboys, The Watermelon Revolution, Rio, Bobby Blackmon, and Jacqueline Jones. Music starts at 11am each day.

Arrive early either day of the fair and take advantage of the $5 breakfasts presented from 7-10am at the historic Donnelly House. They’ll also be offering $3 lunch specials from 11am-2pm both days.

The Mount Dora Craft Fair is free to attend.
