Artegon Marketplace, formerly known as Festival Bay Mall, is an enclosed shopping mall located on International Drive in Orlando, Florida, United States. Opened in 2002 as a property of the Belz Factory Outlets, it is owned by FB Orlando Acquisition Company, LLC and managed by Paragon Outlet Partners LLC.

It also comprises several entertainment venues, including a Cinemark movie theater, Sky Zone Trampoline Park, Sky Trail Ropes Course, Gods & Monsters, and a Putting Edge glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course.HistoryThe mall was planned and developed by Belz Enterprises. 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.

    The centre is closed... We parked the car and we are faced with the closed door of the Center... No indication on the door and a few open restaurant in the parking lot had no information to share with us... Note on the other side of the avenue many Outlet stores where we could make interesting purchases... And especially a giant store specialized in extraordinary outdoor sports as Americans do

    Even though the place was nice before it closed i just felt the Festival Bay Mall was more of a "unique mall with character". Artegon Lacked many stores and was very dead but the ceiling was well lit. I felt that if they got tenets for the Festival Bay mall it could of been better. The mall before just felt more tropical and cool yet hip. Just sad what happened.

    The only thing left here is Bass Pro Shop and The Movie Theatre. The seating at the movies here is phenomenal, and I absolutely love it, but I don't understand why everything in this mall constantly goes out of business? Artegon was a great concept, and I truly love art and loved the uniqueness of each vendor. I have to say, that I'm sad to see them go. It's like a ghost town in there now. "Wow!"

    I can't believe this place shut down. It was a true mall. There were dozens and dozens of unique vendors. Every single shop was very interesting and worth a look. It's so unfortunate all of these small businesses were kicked out. I don't know where else you can go to find this environment. I guess people just prefer the same bland mall that only has overpriced clothing instead. :/

    Movie theater has a new bar, new sits updated. Early morning my market place is beautiful, alot of options. From paintings, to clothes, to furniture. It is truly breathtaking.

    I am not one who enjoys malls, I do most of my shopping on Amazon, but this is a unique and interesting place. Local vendors, art, and stylish from one end to the other. I am unsure of its future, but it will be missed if it closes. The glow golf was fun!
