Immerse 2018 downtown Orlando

The Creative City Project returns as IMMERSE on October 21, 2017

Imagine strolling around the city as over 1,000 artists and performers take to the streets of Downtown Orlando to showcase our local community’s creative talent and you’ve painted a pretty accurate portrait of the annual Creative City Project.

This much-anticipated annual event, previously known as The Creative City Project, returns on Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 5-11pm as IMMERSE 2017.
