Church Street District 2018

About Church Street District

Located in the heart of Downtown Orlando, the Church Street District is home to an eclectic mix of world class dining, professional sports, live entertainment, night spots, theater and Orlando’s award winning Amway Center. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s always something new to discover on Church Street.

The area is deeply rooted in Orlando’s history and was developed around the City’s original train station. The Old Orlando Railroad Depot, dedicated in January of 1890 is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a local historic landmark. In concert with the opening of the Amway Center in 2010, businesses along historic Church Street joined forces to create a vibrant commercial district that attracts visitors from across the globe to Downtown Orlando.

The Church Street District received Main Street designation in 2011 and is focused on enhancing the corridor through marketing, hosting special events such as car shows and art festivals and promoting the area’s unique establishments.

“Amway Center brings diverse programming and draws big crowds throughout the year, so partnering with the Church Street District as a member makes perfect sense for us. The bars, restaurants and clubs, along with other merchants that line the street, help make downtown a lively and vibrant destination where patrons can spend time before and after our shows. Church Street District’s frequent, large-scale street activations complement our events and help create memorable experiences for everyone.” – Kirk Wingerson, Orlando Venues
