Performing Art & Installations
Art is part of our everyday life in Overland Park.
Overland Park embraces art from free concerts to iconic art installations. The city's cultural amenities include live performances, sculpture and art collections.
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 celebrates it's 54th year on Saturday, Sept. 26, in Downtown Overland Park. It will be a fantastic day with great fun. Plan to join us. Headline performance by Hot Buttered Rum!
