Especially notable are Theatre Jacksonville, one of the oldest community theaters in the United States; Miami's Florida Grand Opera, Miami City Ballet and New World Symphony Orchestra; the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre and Orlando Ballet; and in Tampa, the Florida Orchestra, Opera Tampa and numerous theater companies.
The year-round festival roster in Florida comprises hundreds of events, among them arts and culture, music, film and food festivals. Drawing big crowds are the Jacksonville Jazz Festival, the Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival, Festival Miami and Electric Daisy Carnival.
