Welcome To The City District
The Heart of Orlando
Bringing Art to Unexpected Places
In partnership with the City of Orlando and the Downtown Arts District, City District is launching downtown Orlando’s first Traffic Art Box Program. This exciting new initiative seeks to enhance the visual appeal of our community by turning ordinary traffic signal boxes into beautiful works of art.
City District is accepting artist applications through June 5, 2023.
Opportunities for creative collaboratives are available for downtown stakeholders.
City District Orlando
City District is located in the heart of Orlando and encompasses Downtown’s historic Central Business Art and Entertainment Districts.
Nestled between our city skyscrapers is architecture that dates back to the 1900s tribute to the rich history of our City Beautiful. From award-winning venues, intimate art galleries and vibrant nightlife, the City District offers unique experiences at every corner.
Main Street is a Movement
Orlando Main Streets
In 2008 Mayor Buddy Dyer and the City of Orlando Council implemented the Orlando Main Streets program. Orlando Main Streets serves as an economic backbone for Commercial Districts within city limits and operates under the nationally accredited Main Street AmericaTM program. As a Main Street AmericaTM Affiliate, City District, Inc. is part of a network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities that share a commitment to creating high-quality places and building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development. Each Orlando Main Streets district operates as an individual organization under the Orlando Main Streets program and follows a tried and true four point approach to community revitalization. Orlando Main Street Districts receive intensive training, guidance, and technical support to provide economic support and development, increase community connection, and create a thriving and healthy community.
