Top 5 ways to support the Festival in the Park


FESTIVAL IN THE PARK has Dancers, Painters, Clowns and Crooners!
Now All We Need is YOU!

Your Message Will Affect Thousands! Each year, thousands of people attend Festival in the Park. They come for the art, fun, entertainment, food, and most of all, the festive atmosphere. There’s truly nothing else like it in Charlotte. Soft music drifting through the cool fall evenings…..tents aglow with strings of twinkling lights…tiny faces giggling through clown make-up…and an overall mood of joy and camaraderie. It’s no wonder that for over a quarter of a century the Festival in the Park has become one of the City’s most beloved traditions, a tradition that depends on the generosity of those who understand the importance of supporting the arts in our area.

To Many, The Festival Is Their Only Exposure To The Arts!
While opera patrons and theater buffs attend the Festival, thousands of others arrive to enjoy the only exposure to the arts they’ll have during the year. Festival in the Park is free to all, everyone from toddlers to teens to retirees, across all segments of the population.

Participants And Volunteers – Your Partners In Preserving the Festival Tradition!
While your contributions are very valuable to those attending the Festival, they are priceless to the hundreds of exhibitors, vendors, entertainers and volunteers who stage the event. For no one cherishes the Festival more than those very special individuals. Fire fighters, electricians, crafts people and entertainers are among the many hardworking people you support with your donations.

Become a Friend of the Festival
Festival in the Park is a nonprofit organization that relies on the generous support of public donations for its continuance and growth each year. Since the City or County does not underwrite Festival in the Park, its continuance depends upon contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations. Make a difference to the dancers, painters, clowns and crooners, and to the thousands of people to whom they bring joy by joining Friends of the Festival.
