It was originally planned to open in 2000, but the opening was delayed until 2002. Initial plans called for the mall to be 1100000sqft in size, but it was scaled back to 865000sqft.In 2004, plans were announced for a surfing park, named Ron Jon Surfpark, to be built inside the mall. This project was never opened.In 2011, after acquiring new owners, plans were announced for the mall to be redeveloped. Aside from the main anchors, most of the mall would receive extensive alterations. The signature lake and tile mosaic signs were later on removed from the mall.

  • This isn't your typical cookie-cutter mall with the same dozen clothing stores and cell phone kiosks. This place is very artsy, decorated with original creations and lots of imagination. The businesse...  read more »
  • Wow! What a great place to spend the day! This mall or 'anti-mall' as they like to advertise is full of unique stops and shops. You won't find your run of the mill stores at this shopping location. Lo...  read more »

  • The mall is unique and amazing. It is set up like an open market and you can wander around the artistic booths filled with tons of eye candy. Most of the treasures for sale are hand made, and beautiful. There are several stops inside, things to do that you won't find anywhere, especially in a mall. There is a huge zip line tree house structure, life size game boards and a trampoline park. And the art work covering the walls was awesome, a lot done by kids and teens. We will definitely be going there again to explore longer.
  • This is like no other shopping mall I've been to. It is a fun place to shop but just walking around is the best part. There is so much to see. Talking with some of the vendors, and just looking around you can tell that who ever is running this place has a great vision. You've got to come here if nothing else but to walk around to see all of the beautiful shops and goods this place has to offer.
  • This place is perfect if you are looking for something new to do in Orlando. I feel like My husband and I do the same old same old in orlando and after a few years it gets dull. Well then we found the Artegon! New things every time we come! Plus the movie theater Mark is beyond wonderful! Such a great way to unwind after a long day of walking in those comfy chairs! Prices are the best in orlando! They even allow pets to come and enjoy the mall with you! It is perfect for anyone of any age and their fur baby as well.
  • I liked this place when it was festival bay but wow do I love this place now that it is Artegon! This is one of the most interesting and fun malls I've ever been to, they have so many interesting stores you'll wanna go into every single one. I really appreciate that this mall gives artists a fair opportunity to sell their product to the public. Genius design, and a beautiful place overall, it's a great place for photos too
  • This place has gone through some major renovations since it was Festival Bay! I love the new concept and hope it catches on! There were so many empty artist spaces. Loved the spaces for live performers, the games scattered throughout the mall and the light, airy feeling that made you want to stay a while. It's at the end of the tourist strip, but would really appeal more to hipsters, locals, and art lovers looking for something unique. Definitely worth checking out.
