Celebrate The Parks

« Return to the Event List

Highland Park Neighborhood is excited to announce our first ever "Celebrate The Parks" open street event! Sunday, May 20th from 12-4pm we will be shutting down 6th avenue from Euclid to Douglas Ave for a family friendly afternoon that celebrates the Highland Park and Oak Park neighborhoods, their schools, businesses, and nonprofits!

Did you know that Highland Park has 5 "Turnaround Arts" schools (p.s. the only 5 in Iowa!). Or that there is a $4 million project underway for a new outdoor music venue and all-inclusive STAR Park to open on Riverview Park in 2020? Or that our neighborhoods is the home to ArtForce Iowa, Grandview University, I Have A Dream Foundation, and so many more great things? Well, we think it's time to celebrate all this exciting stuff!

Right now we are starting our search for vendors, sponsors and even performers for the event. We would love to see artwork from our youth on display, or even live performances (school band, poetry, etc).
