by Attractions Magazine Staff

Looking for a magical Holiday experience in Orlando this December? Look no further than Winterfest & Holiday Market at the Orange County Convention Center for four days of pure festive fun, entertainment and shopping.


Organized by Alliance Nationwide Exposition, in partnership with iHeart Media and I-Drive Business Improvement District, Winterfest aims to provide a true seasonal celebration that offers a memorable experience for all ages from Dec. 3-6.

With other events either canceled or postponed because of the pandemic, this will be the first holiday gift show of the year, and it will feature live events, music and attractions as well as a traditional Holiday Market.

The Market will feature more than 1,000 vendors offering the ultimate gift shopping experience for the entire family, while the Convention Center will be fully decorated for the holidays with festive photo opportunities showcasing designer sets, trees, and wreaths throughout.

There will also be magnificent displays of lights and décor, plus festive fare to ensure a complete Christmas experience.

“We have all faced a year like no other. Our International Drive businesses have pushed through with strength and hope as I have never seen before. We are thrilled to have something new & exciting for us all to look forward to this Holiday Season,” says Luann Brooks, Executive Director at the I-Drive Business Improvement District.

“The OCCC is proud to host Orlando Winterfest 2020, which will bring our community together for a festive holiday consumer event,” said OCCC Executive Director Mark Tester. “After safely hosting several events, consumer shows, and implementing our Recovery and Resiliency, we are confident Winterfest will provide an enjoyable holiday experience for all to enjoy.”

Ticketmaster sales for the event begin on Friday, Oct. 23, and full details can be found online at OrlandoWinterfest.com.
