FLCreatives Happy Hour #66 at Orlando Fringe Beer Tent

The Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival is one of the most anticipated and creatively freewheeling events we have in Orlando, and our May happy hour has always taken place under their sacred Beer Tent. Your beer money all goes to support this non-profit festival and make sure independent theatre has a place to grow and thrive every year.

Usually we hang out under the beer tent for a little while and take advantage of the food trucks parked on the green lawn (bring cash), and follow that up with a show or two at the festival.

Some shows I am suggesting that have some appeal to Florida Creatives:

  • Connected at 5:45
  • Scientist Turned Comedian at 7:30
  • Medicine at 11:00

There are tons of great shows, and probably several you would like to see if you check out the complete list, so please don't hesitate to make a suggestion (take a look at Page 8 of this PDF for the Monday schedule).

What?

Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends.

Bring to Orlando: HATCH Experience

When I found out about this, it made me think of the same kind of thing I would like to see grow out of Florida Creatives - something multi-disciplinary, and not just focused on talking heads, but that inspires people to make things:

HATCH is a biannual four-day experience that energizes creative professionals and thought leaders who are serious about transforming their ideas and talents into bold action, while inspiring others to do the same.
