The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival is one of the nation’s oldest, largest and most prestigious outdoor art festivals. The Festival debuted in March 1960 as a community project to bring local artists and art lovers together. It is produced by an all-volunteer board and draws more than 350,000 visitors each year.
By volunteering you will experience a one-of-a kind behind-the-scenes opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation for the artists and their award-winning artwork. Our volunteers help make the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival one of the top outdoor festivals in the country.
Our Patrons Program was created to provide support of Festival artists through dedicated funds pledged to purchase artwork during our annual show. By participating, Patrons make monetary pledges for given levels of spending. Up to 95 percent of your contribution stays with you to purchase art and the remainder goes to support The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival.
