Arts in the Park

Arts in the Park is a one-day arts festival sponsored by Friends of High School Park, and held at High School Park in the heart of Elkins Park, PA .

Sunday, October 2nd, 2022 – Rained out

Arts in the Park was created in 1995 to bring together many of our local talented artists and musicians for a fun, creative day to help raise funds for Friends of High School Park. Please come spend the day with us in our beautiful protected space while enjoying the talents of our gifted and accomplished community artisans. Each year we jury dozens of artists and craftspeople to display and sell their work at the festival, and each festival draws over two thousand visitors from Elkins Park, Cheltenham, and neighboring communities.

At Arts in the Park, local musicians donate their talents to fill the festival with music all day long. Musicians should submit a recording of their music for review. Get the band together and come join us!


We offer unique marketing packages at varying levels to community-minded companies. Our intention is to build successful partnerships with sponsors to offer them advance publicity and an opportunity for participation at the event. That partnership also provides invaluable financial support to The Friends of High School Park for our continued work on the restoration and maintenance of this 11 acre park.
