Celebrating its 44th anniversary the Park Avenue Summer Art Festival is hosted and produced by the Park Avenue Revitalization Committee and the Park Avenue Merchants Association.

We take pride in giving entertainers the opportunity to perform on three different stages throughout the festival.

NOTE: Our budget does not allow us to pay entertainers. BUT... since our Festival has an estimated 225,000 attendees over the course of two days, this is a great promotion opportunity to be seen by thousands of people.
