The Windermere Fine Arts Show is searching for local high school artists to compete in the event's newest addition: the sidewalk chalk competition.

The judged event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, at Windermere Town Hall, 520 Main St.

Interested students will need to fill out an application and show up at 9 a.m. at Town Hall.  

The event is also looking for a talented student to sing the national anthem to kick off the opening ceremony at 12 p.m. on Saturday, March 11.

Those who are interested should contact Windermere Arts Chair Anne Scharer at (407) 840-7830 or at [email protected]


The first event, which was originally called the Windermere Art Affair, made its debut in 2016. In 2017, the event expanded to two days after its success. 

Proceeds from the event have benefited the town of Windermere, as well as area schools and organizations, such as the Windermere Elementary School’s art department, Olympia High School’s art department, Gotha Middle School, City Arts Factory, The Russell Home and New Hope for Kids.

Windermere Arts, and its events the Windermere Fine Arts Show and the Art, Wine & Music Stroll, are independent from the town of Windermere.
