Events in Central Florida
There might not be a better time to enjoy the Sunshine State than the middle of spring when temperatures sit in the mid-80s on average and the rainy season is still months away. This April, central Florida communities like Orlando, Winter Park, and Altamonte will be celebrating the season in earnest with a collection of outdoor events.
Florida Film Festival
Orlando plays hosts to the Florida Film Festival for the 27th year in a row this coming April 6th through the 15th. This year’s iteration is set to include nearly 200 showings from 35 different countries, more than 20 world premieres, and accommodate more than 23,000 attendees. The festival kicks off at the Opening Night Party with food and drinks, in addition to the Opening Night Film showing. Ticket packages are on sale now.
Spring Fiesta in the Park
The 46th Annual Spring Fiesta in the Park is just around the corner. The Spring Fiesta, which is Orlando’s largest arts and crafts festival, will bring two days of live entertainment, food, kids’ activities, and hundreds of local artists to Lake Eola Park April 7th and 8th. Over 250,000 guests are expected to attend the free event.
Celebration Exotic Car Festival
Are you an exotic car buff? Now’s your chance to pull your hot rod out of storage and show it off! Celebration Exotic Car Festival is hitting the pavement April 12th through 15th at Daytona International Speedway. Scheduled events include Track Days, which allows exotic car owners the unique opportunity to drive their car on one of the world’s most famous racetracks. Other highlights include a concert by REO Speedwagon and two full days of car shows and rallies set in downtown Orlando.

National Park Week
April is the perfect time to explore Florida’s unique and beautiful scenery and take in some of its intriguing history. April 21st through 29th is National Park Week, which means Florida’s 11 U.S. National Parks will be open free of admission. It’s a great opportunity to load up the RV and take the family on a day trip to scenic destinations like the Everglades, Dry Tortugas or the Gulf Islands, or gain some unique historical perspective at Castillo de San Marcos, Fort Caroline or Fort Matanzas.
Canaveral National Seashore is just a short drive from Orlando, making it a choice destination for a day exploring the pristine, undeveloped and protected beaches.
Winter Park Paint Out
Winter Park hosts its 10th Annual Winter Park Paint Out April 22nd through the 28th at the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculptured Gardens. The festival will include 25 plein air, or “in the open air,” artists capturing the scenery of the sculpture garden using oils, watercolors, and pastels. The festival is free, and completed paintings will be hung in the museum afterward so visitors can see the progress being made as the week goes on and purchase a painting after they’re completed as well.
