This outdoor, juried art show will showcase fine arts and crafts from a wide regional area, and highlight a defining quality of Highland Park as a creative, multi-cultural, dynamic community. This cultural festival will draw crowds of local residents and visitors from Highland Park and the Central Jersey region, in support of our organizations’ mutual goals.
This fourth annual event, scheduled for Sunday, September 21, 2008, will build on our existing event management experience. Arts in the Park will present the best of our town: the arts, entertainment, dining, shopping and education available here in Highland Park. The multi-layered festivities will keep the crowds entertained as they experience all that Highland Park has to offer in the arts, while exploring our town as a shopping and dining destination. Raritan Avenue, the core of Highland Park’s downtown district, will be closed to traffic to serve as the event’s primary location.
The main attraction of The Arts in the Park will be the juried show, highlighting Highland Park’s many local artists as well as others.
