Once you’ve opened all the presents, eaten all the holiday treats and put away all the decoration, it can get a little depressing. Avoid the post-holiday slump by planning a trip to Orlando in January. The city is full of fun and can’t-miss events that will appeal to visitors of all ages. Here’s what to add to your calendar for the month of January:
On January 24 and 25, Rock the Universe returns to Universal Studios, bringing in some of the biggest acts in contemporary Christian music. Headliners for the 2020 show include Switchfoot, Newsboys, Tenth Avenue North, Chris Tomlin, TobyMac and Bethel Music.
SeaWorld honors Latin cultures and the arrival of the Three Wise Men during its Three Kings Celebration. Taking place January 4-6, the special holiday event includes a living nativity show, incredible cultural foods and one last chance to see the holiday show O Wondrous Night and the Sea of Trees.
Starting January 17 and running through February 24, the International Festival of the Arts at Epcot is a highlight of the year. The festival celebrates all things art, from the culinary arts to the performing arts to the visual arts. Activities include guided art classes, concerts, workshops and wine tastings.
Sports fans can’t miss two major football games, the VRBO Citrus Bowl on January 1 and the NFL Pro Bowl on January 27. Both games take place at Camping World Stadium. ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will have free and family-friendly Pro Bowl activities leading up to the big game. Over at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando, the Orlando Magic basketball team has seven home games during the month of January.
If music is more your taste, the House of Blues has several awesome musical arts performing in January. On January 4, see In the End & Audioecho, a Linkin Park tribute band honoring the late Chester Bennington and Chris Cornel. Grace Potter takes the stage on January 10 and Motion City Soundtrack on January 15. Other January performances include Keith Sweat, Jonny Lang and Machinehead.
