An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating indefinitely
The festival is held in the renowned Highland Park, which features the largest variety and display of lilacs in North America. In addition to the flowers, the festival features a wine tasting, craft beer expo, a parade and 5k and 10k races on different days of the festival. There are also local, regional and national bands performing every day.
Art in the Park takes place along Reservoir Avenue, a shaded street adjacent to the lilac gardens and the main festival site. Booths are set up on the curb back across the sidewalk, leaving the street open for shoppers. The street is closed to traffic during the festival hours of 10-6 on Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday and open to artists only during set-up and tear-down. Free parking for artists is on adjacent streets, with staff on golf carts providing rides. Shoppers may access Art in the Park on paths through the lilacs or the shuttle stop at the end of the show.
