Arts in the Park/Parktoberfest was created in 1995 to bring together many of our local talented artists and musicians for a fun, creative day to help raise funds for Friends of High School Park. Please come spend the day with us in our beautiful protected space while enjoying the talents of our gifted and accomplished community artisans. Each year we jury dozens of artists and craftspeople to display and sell their work at the festival, and each festival draws over two thousand visitors from Elkins Park, Cheltenham, and neighboring communities.
