Central Florida’s signature arts event returns for its 8th year to the heart of Downtown Orlando as The Creative City Project presents “IMMERSE 2021” on October 15th, 16th and 17th with several new installations in the three days of performances.

It takes over the streets and public spaces in Downtown Orlando every October.  This year’s event showcases more than 1,000 artists from over 100 arts organizations, including the Orlando Ballet and the Orlando Philharmonic, in the streets and public spaces along Orange Avenue, Church Street and Pine Street on Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., with experiences opening at noon on Saturday.  New large-scale, interactive installations make IMMERSE 2021 more immersive than ever.

“The Creative City Project’s annual event IMMERSE is dedicated to creating experiences that audiences can’t have anywhere else,” says Executive Director Cole NeSmith.  “Whether it’s a Cirque du Soleil performer flying from a crane high overhead, an immersive orchestral experience that puts the audience at the center of the orchestra, or large-scale, interactive projection experiences, we’re committed to creating a one-of-a-kind experience. We have an amazing group of artistic collaborations this year to create more innovative experiences and unique performances.”

 IMMERSE 2021 offers several different ticket options ranging from free to VIP and the special Dinner Party Project Experience. Guests are also encouraged to visit the many bars and restaurants along the event footprint as they enjoy all the experiences IMMERSE offers.  

Creative City Project began in 2012 as a group of artists performing on street corners and in plazas around Downtown Orlando.  It has now grown into an arts non-profit organization that helps audiences live a life of creativity and adventure throughout the year and at its annual event IMMERSE.
