ICON Park is kicking off its Holiday season with the return of The Santa Workshop Experience, starting November 5, 2021.
The Orlando Museum of Art will look a lot like Christmas when the 35th annual Festival of Trees returns November November 13-21, 2021.
This year’s theme is “Sparkling Holiday Traditions,” selected by the Council of 101 to reflect this long-running crowd favorite.
Whether you’re Irish or just feeling like you are this time of the year, there are a lot of ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the Orlando area.
But don’t worry if you don’t have plans…I’ve got you covered! As we are still in a pandemic, please remember to party safely…social distance and wear your masks when not actively drinking.
Here are CitySurfing Orlando’s 2021 picks for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day:
Orlando native, and Broadway star, Michael James Scott (Aladdin, The Book of Mormon, Something Rotten, Hair, and so much more) will headline the Dr. Phillips Center’s Frontyard Festival with “A Fierce Christmas” on Saturday, December 19 at 8pm.

The winter holiday season in Orlando is usually full of festivals and events celebrating Christmas and other holidays, but with the pandemic, the 2020 holiday season looks very different.

From ongoing events to limited time events, here are my picks for holiday events to enjoy this season:
Bringing some holiday cheer to Orlando, Dazzling Nights will turn Harry P. Leu Gardens into a magical wonderland December 1 – January 3, 2021.
The annual Winter Wonderland event returns to Wekiva Island in Longwood from December 1 to January 1, 2021, and it has been updated for the safety of its guests.
This year’s Winter Wonderland will feature a Christmas tree forest full of decorated trees that will serve as the perfect backdrop to the festivities. The schoolhouse will be made up to look like a giant gingerbread house, and “snow” flurries will fall nightly from 6 to 9pm weekdays, and 12 to 9pm on weekends.
Earlier this summer, Give Kids the World (GKTW) temporarily closed due to the pandemic, but it has reopened for the holidays to host its first ever “Night of a Million Lights” event for visitors to enjoy.
Now through January 3, 2021, the Gaylord Palms resort is hosting its annual Christmas at Gaylord Palms event, featuring live performances, a festive breakfast with the Grinch, gingerbread decorating and more.
