The 35th Festival of the Masters will be held this Friday through Sunday at Downtown Disney. The open-air art festival will feature nearly 150 award-winning artists and more.
Showcasing one-of-a-kind and limited edition painting, photography, sculpture, jewelry and more, this prestigious show is ranked among the country’s finest outdoor art festivals. There’s a lot more to enjoy, too, like amazing chalk art, live music, specialty foods and family-friendly activities.
One exciting feature for video game fans will be the first opportunity to play the soon to be released Epic Mickey game for the Nintendo Wii. The game will be featured in two large exhibit tents.
Rainforest Café will be showing off tropical macaw birds and will have a children’s activity exhibit. As they have before, the Basin store in the Marketplace will have a sculptor carving a 250-pound bar of soap into Mickey Mouse.
Fun Fact: When Festival of the Masters started in 1975, it was called Art Fest
in the Village. Downtown Disney was then called Disney Village. The name was changed to Festival of the Masters in 1979.
Admission and parking are complimentary.
