2017 Orlando Cabaret Festival - How To Enjoy The Festival

THEATRE LOCATION: Set your mapping app to Mad Cow Theatre, 54 W. Church Street, Orlando 32801. Mad Cow Theatre is smack-dab in the heart of Downtown Orlando. We’re across from the 55W apartment building, on the second floor, right above Amura Japanese Restaurant and Jersey Mike’s. 

TICKETS: We recommend buying your tickets as early as possible. You can purchase them online or by calling our Box Office at (407) 297-8788 x1. 


ORDERING LUNCHThe Orlando Cabaret Festival features select weekday lunchtime performances designed especially for downtown workers and those looking for daytime entertainment. These performances all start at noon and last 45 minutes which means downtown workers can make it back to their offices within an hour!  


You are encouraged to pre-purchase a lunch through Mad Cow and have your lunch waiting for you at the theatre. This year we're featuring lunches from always delicious Apple Spice Catering Company - a full menu can be found here. You may also bring your own lunch or purchase a lunch from one of the many restaurants nearby. To see the dining options nearest the theatre click here

HUNGRY? THIRSTY? Check out nearby restaurants before or after the show! Or when you get to Mad Cow, stop by the bar for a show signature drink!

WHERE CAN I PARK? Choices, choices, choices:
  • The Savings Choice (plus Cool Firetrucks!): $5-$8 at Central Parking Garage at 53 West Central, right across from the BIG Fire Department #1. We have a special deal with them. Bring your parking ticket to the box office, get a validation sticker, and (voila!) you get a big discount on your parking—usually only five bucks…eight bucks if there’s a big event downtown. Pro Tip: If you meet an attendant on the way into the parking lot, be sure to tell them you are going to Mad Cow Theatre.


  • The Swanky Choice: $6-$15 Valet park at Kres Chophouse, located on Church Street near Orange Avenue. (Note: only available for evening performances). Again, be sure to get your ticket validated at Mad Cow. It’s usually $10. It might be $15 during city events. AND if you stop at Kres for some delicious pre-show goodies, you only pay $6 for your parking. You can’t beat that deal! 


  • The “Worried About the Weather” Choice: The Sun Trust Center Garage (1,041 spaces, 25 ADA-accessible; enter on South Street) and the 55 West Garage on Pine Street (300 spaces, 9 ADA-accessible; enter on Pine Street) are nearby and feature covered walkways to the theatre. Leave your umbrella in the car!
