Dinner Shows
Our No. 1 recommendation for August is the hottest new show to hit Orlando, Rock Dinner Show! Located in the heart of the tourist epicenter of Central Florida on International Drive, the Rock Dinner Show is a dining and entertainment experience that is unrivaled in the area. Join the legendary cast of performers who take you on a high-energy musical journey from the most iconic pop and rock stars of all-time. The Vegas-style entertainment isn’t the only attraction for the Rock Dinner Show, however. Executive chef Russell T. Booth has curated a menu consisting of a wedge salad, choice of an entrée (scallopini of chicken, braised short rib or vegan pasta primavera) and a double chocolate mousse-filled cupcake for dessert that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters!

With its high-energy music, sensational dancing and dazzling special effects, the Rock Dinner Show is the hottest dinner show on the market in Orlando today. Visit Orlando.ShowTickets.com to ensure that it’s a part of your next Central Florida vacation!

Amway Center
The Amway Center has two highly-anticipated concert tours coming to the Amway Center in August. Fans of Shakira won’t want to miss their chance to see the pop sensation in Orlando as she stops in Orlando August 14, while Alejandro Fernandez will play in Central Florida on August 26. Other events taking place in the Amway Center include Monster Jam on August 18 and The Ultimate Wealth and Achievement Summit featuring Tony Robbins, Robert Herjavec and Gary Vaynerchuk on August 28.

Fans of MLS soccer will have one opportunity to see Orlando’s team in August, as the Orlando City Lions take the field August 24 against Atlanta United FC at Orlando City Stadium.   

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts always has a diverse collection of shows playing, and August is no different, with a variety of concerts and shows taking center stage. Among those playing in the venue include: Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in Concert (August 25), The Athletes of Art (August 26) and My Brother, My Brother and Me (August 31).

Theme Parks
The Walt Disney World Resort is heading straight from summer to the fall with some of the most popular special events that Disney has to offer! The highly-anticipated Epcot International Food & Wine Festival returns on August 30, beginning a 10+ week culinary journey through the world (and don’t forget the Eat to the Beat concert series!). Also ushering in fall at the Magic Kingdom Park is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, which kicks off August 17 and offers families the chance to experience the park’s top attractions, special shows, fireworks and a parade coupled with unlimited trick-or-treating on select nights.    

With all of these shows and events taking place this August, there’s no better way to finish out summer than in Central Florida!
