Art is part of our everyday life in Overland Park.

Overland Park embraces art from free concerts to iconic art installations. The city provides cultural amenities from live performances to sculpture and art collections.

Art & Sculptures

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

Overland Park has a Public Art Master Plan that guides when, where and what type of art will be installed. 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. 26, in Downtown Overland Park. It was a fantastic day with great fun. Plan to join us.

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


  • Children's First Wednesday Fun: Entertainment for kids at 10 a.m. on the first Wednesday of the month, except January and February. Free admission.
