The world’s largest Tiny House Festival is coming to Orlando’s Bill Frederick Park this weekend, November 22-24.
The tiny home idea has gotten extremely popular and this is your chance to explore a variety of options. Tiny houses, vintage campers, tear drops, skoolies (bus conversions), gypsy wagons, and other styles of tiny structures will be available to view and tour.
Celebrated author Zora Neale Hurston grew up in Eatonville, and the historic town — one of the first self-governing, all-black communities in the U.S. — will honor Hurston’s memory with annual Zora! Festival, also known as the Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities, from January 26 to February 3, 2019.
Next weekend, downtown Orlando will turn into one big party as Festival Calle Orange takes over the streets for the 14th year.
Over 10 blocks of downtown will be closed for the festivities, which will showcase the sights and sounds of the Hispanic Community. Caribbean, Central America and South America will be represented in music, food, dance and more.
There will be five stages going simultaneously with live bands, including Grupo Mania, Trina, Samuel Hernandez, Tito Rojas, and Rey Ruiz. There will even be a block of entertainment just for children to enjoy.
The event takes place down Orange Ave from Colonial Dr. to Robinson St, as well as a block in each direction of Orange. Entrances to the festival can be found on Livingston St at Garland to the west and Magnolia to the east, plus at Concord and Magnolia.
This celebration of Latin America takes place October 23, 2011, from 11am to 7pm.
Festival Calle Orange is free to attend, so bring the entire family.
