Ivanhoe Spruce Up – June 23

Ivanhoe Village Main Street is teaming with Green Up Orlando, Keep Orlando Beautiful, and Summit Church to clean and green the Loch Haven Neighborhood Center and surrounding neighborhoods. We’ll be planting, mulching, painting, sprucing up — and having lots of fun! Water, light snacks and all needed supplies are provided.

We’re going to need your help! All ages may participate. This is a great family volunteer activity and students may earn community service hours. No children under 14 may participate without direct adult supervision. Those between 14 and 18 attending without their parent must have a signed minor release form from parent or legal guardian. A form may be requested and brought with child the day of the event.

Volunteer spots are limited and fill quickly, and you must register by June 20. Call Jody Buyas of Keep Orlando Beautiful at 407.246.2752 or e-mail her at Looking forward to a great turnout from the neighborhood!

Ivanhoe Village Jingle Eve Nov. 18th – 6p – 10p

Merchant Announcement Letter

This year’s Jingle Eve Holiday Open House will be November 18 from 6pm until 10pm and will span Orange Ave and down to Alden and up Virginia Drive. The Ivanhoe Village Board of Directors is eager to work with you to make this annual event the best attended ever and are working diligently to create lots of “Wow Factor” additions to this Ivanhoe Village tradition. Some of the activities planned include:


  • Live Holiday Music
  • Santa Claus
  • Strolling Dickens Christmas Carol Characters
  • Dancers from the Nutcracker Ballet
  • Toys for Tots Donation Box
  • Boat Parade on Lake Ivanhoe
  • Wine Strolls


We can’t think of a better way to ring in the holiday season than to showcase your business to the thousands of diners and shoppers who will visit our Ivanhoe Village Main Street!Of course, to pull off such an event, we need your help and there are a number of ways you can contribute.


First, for those of you who have donated in the past, would you consider donating again? Donations help pay for entertainment, flyers, posters, print advertising, equipment rental and permits. To donate, call 407-393-8765 or email: or make your check payable to Ivanhoe Village and mail to: 1611-A Alden Rd Suite E Orlando, FL 32803.


Second, if you would like to bring in an artist or entertainer or even promote your own business on the street, consider hosting a booth. A booth consists of a table and two chairs and is available for $20.00. We will highlight your business and/or booth in our Jingle Eve map which will be handed out the day of the event.


Third, holiday string lights will be installed by volunteers for special price of $25.00 which includes a 100 bulb string lights will be placed outside of your business, and will be yours to keep. Installation of your own lights is available for $15.00. Your reservation and payment is required by Friday, November 4th. Volunteers will be here to hang the lights on Thursday the 17th of November in preparation for the Jingle Eve event. If you can donate food to feed these hungry volunteers that would be great.


In addition to the holiday decorations that you display in your business, holiday lights and other decorations will be placed in some of the more dimly-lit areas of Orange Avenue for a continuous festive feeling all along the avenue. This will also connect the merchants south of Gaston-Edwards Park and the merchants on Virginia Drive to the festivities to the north. We recommend keeping these lights up throughout the Holiday Season.


Fourth, we need volunteers on Friday afternoon from 1pm until 4pm to set up the event, from 6pm until 10pm during the event and from 10 pm on to tear down after the event on Friday night.


On behalf of the Board of Directors, we thank you for all your ideas and assistance and look forward to your participation in this year’s Jingle Eve.


Happy Holidays!
