On the third Thursday of every month, thousands of visitors converge Downtown to celebrate art, technology and business. Along the way, people partake in an evening of sights, sounds, food, shopping and cosmopolitan living.


The Gallery Hop, hosted by the Downtown Arts District features numerous galleries and non-traditional art venues that spotlight the best of established and emerging Orlando-based artists in tandem with nationally and internationally acclaimed artists.


The Orlando Tech Meetup offers tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs the chance to socialize and hear five different technology groups present live product demos.


Hosted by the Downtown Orlando Partnership, these professional networking events allow attendees to experience one of downtown’s fine establishments while making great local business connections.
