  • The Villages Renaissance Faire
    For the weekend of January 4 and 5, the polo grounds transform into the Renaissance-era Village of Hopewell for The Villages Renaissance Faire. Down the dusty roads, vendors sell jewelry and wooden crafts, sword fighters entertain in a comedy show, and King Henry VIII enjoys a rousing joust. Throughout the day, patrons can also fill their stomachs with hearty fair foods, including massive roasted-turkey legs.

  • Ocala Crawfish Fest
    A famous tautologist once said that nothing pairs better with a crawfish festival than crawfish. This thought-provoking maxim is an apt summation of the Ocala Crawfish Fest, an annual celebration of Louisiana-style cooking and live music. In an interview with Ocala.com, festival organizer Deb Cone described the event as an opportunity to combine kids-education fundraising efforts with casual, laid-back fun. As she put it, “We wanted to do something for the entire community where you don't have to dress up.” Attendees can throw down blankets or lawn chairs and kick back to musical stylings that are as Cajun as the cuisine that is being served up, all while reveling in the knowledge that their merriment is helping the independent education facility Hale Academy.

  • The Ultimate Painter Art Gallery
    At JeLi's Painting, kids and adults take to the canvas fueled by inspiration and expert guidance. The studio provides all the essentials—a canvas, brush, and selection of paints—leaving everything accounted for except your imagination, which can manifest its wildest visions onto a canvas to take home and hang over the pet door just to mess with your dog. On top of that, the staff offers painting services that can turn any home into a beautiful work of art: wainscoting, marble finishing, metallics, and bright sea-sponge texture work, to name a few.

Other festive activities include contests, giveaways, and interactive games, such as pin the tail on the rum cask.

The one-day festival looks to feature a wide array of items that ranges from soy candles and handmade jewelry to more unexpected gifts, such as beaded X-Files posters. There will be some packaged foods for sale as well, including cake balls and homemade pickles, which are much more enjoyable than pickle-made homes.

    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Global Peace Film Festival facet_type_id: 8a52e060-5f37-1032-bddf-8c2ac570cf7c html_text: The Global Peace Film Festival celebrates and furthers messages of peace and environmentalism with 40 films screened at venues across Orlando. Documentaries, narrative full lengths, and short films from around the globe spare cinephiles from direct sunlight while filmmakers, special guests, and local activists educate attendees about the power of the medium in special panel discussions. The peace it champions as a whole goes beyond anti-war, often touching on a more personal well-being that's reflected in the lives of individuals and communities.
