Festival in the Park

CHARLOTTE, NC —  Since 1964, Festival in the Park has been bringing good music, good art and good times to Charlotteans and visitors from around the world. This year the Festival will be held on September 22-24, 2017 and is designed to promote and stimulate interest in the arts. It provides the opportunity for all to see, hear, and learn from over 180 artists and crafts people who actively demonstrate and display their art.

Festival in the Park was selected as one of Southeast Tourism Society's Top 20 Events for the month of September!  In past years, Festival in the Park has also been chosen as one of Sunshine Artists Magazine's 200 BEST festivals.

In years past, visitors to Festival in the Park typically exceeded 85,000 each year. However in 2014, it was estimated that 135,000 attended the Festival.

The Festival is made possible by many groups and individuals. A sampling of the organizations who actively participate in bringing art and entertainment to the Festival are Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, Children's Theatre of Charlotte, Carolina Raptor Center, the Carolina Clowns, the Magicians' Stage,  and the Jazz Arts Initiative. We welcome them and the many others who help make the Festival possible.
