The Fiesta in the Park Committee's mission is to bring family and pet friendly arts and entertainment to downtown Orlando each spring and fall season, while promoting local urban development in the City of Orlando, and through the Orlando Community & Youth Trust. 




"The Orlando Community & Youth Trust, Inc. is a non-profit organization created on September 9, 1994, to support the mission of the City of Orlando Department of Families, Parks, and Recreation (FPR). It is FPR's fundraising entity, making projects possible that are not regularly part of the department's allocated funds. Projects and activities funded by the Trust enhance the quality of life for youth, families and senior citizens living in the City of Orlando."

Col. Corbin Marquand Sarchet, III

Col. Corbin Marquand Sarchett, III, also known to many of us around Orlando simply as Corb, passed away February 7, 2015, at the age of 83.

He not only was a leader and compassionate giver to our local community, he helped found the Fiesta in the Park Committee, thus 

creating the annual Fall Fiesta in the Park in November, and eventually branching out with Spring Fiesta in the Park every April. 

Along with founding the Fiesta in the Park Committee and these two amazing community events that take place at Lake Eola Park, Corb spent more than 50 years with the Boy Scouts of America, served as president of the Central Florida Council and was a Deacon, Trustee and Elder at Park Lake Presbyterian Church.

Please join us in celebrating the life of Corb, and his charitable efforts over the past 60+ years in our beautiful city. We will truly miss him.
