Free Classic Car Show Every Saturday in Old Town
March 31 - March 31, 2022
Love classic cars and free shows? Then cruise to Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida, to enjoy a unique stroll down memory lane. Every Saturday night since 1983, classic cars roll into Old Town and line the streets for this premier car show. This outdoor display is free and open to all. Car enthusiasts, young, old, and the curious have always found something to admire in the careful restorations these cars have undergone. Guests also enjoy the free, family-friendly entertainment provided by local musicians, carnival acts, and animal sideshows. Vintage, antique, and rare cars and trucks roll in early, so you have all evening and night to admire these automotive beauties. You are welcome to peek under the hoods or in the cabins, but don’t touch! These cars are there to show off and compete for a chance to win a drawing. Two winners are announced monthly. Each receives a grand prize of $1,000. If you’re in the neighborhood, then come check out Old Town’s Classic Car Show.
Immortalized by the Ultimate Parisian Bohemian Scenester
February 13 - May 23, 2021
Visit late 19th century Paris through the Belle Époque’s most famous scenester and master artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Experience the famed Parisian Bohemian world through this Post-Impressionist’s eyes in paintings, drawings, and famous lithographic posters that identified and mass-produced the bohemian nightlife, a la Moulin Rouge, all things cabaret, and risqué. Toulouse-Lautrec erased the line between fine and commercial art as he was commissioned to advertise his own favorite nightspots, cabarets, concert halls, and theaters, which some are still popular today. Step back into the Belle Époque and experience for yourself the height of bohemian glamour in the romantic city of lights, Paris, France. Visit the gallery which is 45 minutes south of Orlando at the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. This exhibition runs until May 23, 2021. Admission is free Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., but reservations are required.
Live Music in the Front Yard
December 1 - May 31, 2021
Live music performances return to the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center– on the front yard!

Performing artists who have or will soon grace the lawn during the Frontyard Festival include El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Wynton Marsalis, Step Afrika!, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Smith & Myers.
Dr. Phillips felt the time was right to reinvigorate the community and provide support for the entertainment industry in a safe manner that keeps its patrons and artists safe. From December 2020 to May 2021, you and your family or party of five can reserve a socially distant box from which to watch live music, dance, comedy, films, and unique cultural experiences. Food and drinks from your favorite local restaurants will be available for purchase.

Great place to stay
Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff and lovely breakfast. So affordable and beds are super comfy! Would definitely go back. Perfect for going to Universal, we were able to walk everyday. Staff were so helpful and pleasant. Cleaners came everyday and were very nice also.
Excellent stay, clean, close to Universal
The room was comfortable and super clean, check-in was fast and so was the check out. Friendly and smiley attendants and very knowledgeable of the area. Location, location, location: the room was very quiet and you are just by International Drive. Best price and experience in Orlando so far.
