Weekend Events

This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is Ralphfest 4, a three-day music festival at different venues around town. Tons of bands, band reunions, Sunday BBQ, and more.

Fashion, entertainment, interior design, and bourbon tastings (?) come together at the Orlando Museum of Art's Antiques, Vintage & Garden Show this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 

For even more antiques and some potentially strange finds, don't miss Renninger's Antiques and Collectors Extravaganza this weekend in Mount Dora; tickets are between $4 and $15 depending on the day(s).

This Saturday and Sunday, the Downtown Food & Wine Fest will feature 30 food vendors, 10 wine stations, and plenty of live music and activities; tickets start at $15 online and $20 at the gates.

A lot of our Weekend Events start this Friday, including Ralphfest, the Antiques, Vintage & Garden Show, and Renninger's. It's also the last weekend of the Osceola County Fair, going on through Sunday.

Saturday, February 21st

EuroJam 2015 is Central Florida's largest European-only car show, happening this Saturday from 9:00am; tickets start at $5. 

The 15th Annual Orlando Wetlands Festival is a free event at one of our favorite parks, going on this Saturday from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Check out the schedule for tours, activities, workshops, prizes, and music. 

Feeling retro? Then don't miss The Orlando (Afternoon) Shuffle this Saturday from 3:00 to 5:00pm; free, equipment provided. 

So, lent kind of already started, but that's not keeping Sanford from partying. Sanford Mardi Gras takes over downtown Sanford this Saturday, from 11:00am to 6:00pm.  

Brookhaven Spring Market is your chance to meet some of Orlando's finest makers and vintage curators, including leather craftsmen, jewelry designers, and more. (In a similar vein, have you checked out Yelp's Orlando Made?) 

$15 gets you into Science Night Live! at the Science Center, including presentations, labs, movies, and trivia, with food and drink for purchase.

Happy Lunar New Year! Come out and celebrate at the Dragon Parade and Lunar New Year Festival, happening this Sunday from 11:00am to 5:00pm at Fashion Square Mall. There will be dancing, acrobatics, food, crafts, music, and more at this free event.

Our favorite way to take in all that is the Oscars is at the Enzian. The Oscar Watch Party starts at 7:30pm, but you'll want to get in line at least 30-45 minutes before then to get a good table. Rewatch the nominees, because you can win some great prizes! 

Dog people, listen up: Puppy Love Dog Festival is the place to get dog portraits, puppy caricatures, and canine-specific items, this Sunday starting at noon at the acre. 

A great way to introduce your kids to gambling is Superhero Sunday: Bingo Hosted by Spider-Man, happening at the Acme Superstore from 2:00 to 4:00pm.
