Art is not a destination but part of our everyday life in Overland Park.

From free concerts to iconic art installations, the arts in Overland Park is where our residents work and play - parks, city facilities, entertainment centers and along our streets and thoroughfares.

Art & Sculptures

Overland Park embraces art. You see examples of the city's art collections around every corner, from the permanent collections in the city's convention and community centers to sculptures in city parks and the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens.

The city has a Public Art Master Plan that guides when, where and what type of art will be installed across the city. Efforts are made by the city's arts coordinator and the Friends of the Overland Park Arts to ensure equity among wards.

The Overland Park Fall Festival and Parade celebrated it's 54th year on Saturday, Sept. 27, in Downtown Overland Park. It was a fantastic day with great fun. Plan to join us in 2015.

Our free, public musical performances are for audiences of all ages. We have children's concerts, seasonal performances by the OP Civic Band and Overland Park Orchestra.
