Below we’ve compiled seven of our favorite events to add to your bucket list this fall.

Orlando – November 6th-7th
This free event brings family and pet friendly arts to the downtown Orlando area. Located around beautiful Lake Eola, you can enjoy dozens of artists, crafters, and food vendors. Parking is a premium during this weekend so be prepared to find paid parking outside of the event and take a 10-15 minute walk.
