Creative City Project have revealed an exiting Fall/Winter 2023-2024 season of one-of-a-kind art experiences that are not available anywhere else in the world except here in Orlando.

The great news is that the ever popular Dazzling Lights will be making a return to Leu Gardens this holiday season, plus not one, but two new Fall/Halloween Events will also be coming to Leu Gardens, thanks to Creative City Project.

“Our community asked, and we have spoken,” says Creative City Project Executive Director Heide Evans. “We are beyond excited to officially announce our incredible Fall/Winter 2023-2024 season, which delivers both new, popular and always original experiences to the arts-loving and appreciating community of Central Florida. We look forward to many new and returning faces seeing, hearing and experiencing all that Creative City Project has to offer.”
