FESTIVAL IN THE PARK
Since 1964, Festival in the Park has been bringing popular and eclectic music, arts and crafts, and family entertainment to Charlotteans and visitors from around the South. The sounds of singers, dancers, storytellers and more drift across Freedom Park while the lake reflects lights strung from Camelot exhibition tents. The smell of popcorn and festival-food fill the air as children with painted faces happily produce their first artwork. First time visitors are amazed by the variety of arts, crafts, and entertainment; old-timers marvel at the freshness combined with the tradition of each yearís offerings.

 

Itís family?itís art?itís free to the public.

 

We invite you to join the 50th Festival in the Park on Friday, September 19 through Sunday, September 21, 2014. The Festival takes place at Freedom Park in Charlotte, where arts, crafts, entertainment, and family fun bring the community together. We hope to see you there!

 

ELIGIBILITY
Exhibit spaces are awarded based on the quality and variety of the exhibitor pool. The Festival values qualified previous exhibitors. Any exhibitor who commits to demonstrate their medium on a full-time basis will receive preferred location. Please specify needs for successfully demonstrating.
 

All work to be exhibited must be original and attributable solely to the demonstrating craftsperson or display artist. At least 50% of artwork shown must be originals. Only original artwork will be eligible for awards (prints, posters or reproductions can be displayed for purchase, but will not be included in judging). Festival in the Park takes no commission for any art sales.

 

The Festival Exhibitor Committee will screen each artist/exhibitor during the Festival week, and if the work exhibited does not comply with the rules and regulations or the slides or photographs submitted, the artist/exhibitors would be required to leave the Festival. Judgment of the Committee in this matter will be final, and no refunds will be given.
