Art & Music Festival:
The Garfield Park Art & Music Festival is hosted by the Garfield Park Arts Center, Indy Parks, Musical Family Tree, and Garfield Brewery at Garfield Park, the oldest city park in Indianapolis. The 6th annual Garfield Park Art & Music Festival (GPAMF) is an outdoor festival celebrating the art, music, and culture of Indianapolis. The festival will feature local musicians and bands of diverse genres performing their original music. Up to forty local artists working in a variety of mediums will also host artist booths with their fine art and handmade wares for sale as part of a curated art fair.
The mission of this festival is to showcase and celebrate local talent in the art and music scene in a diverse, inclusive, and equitable way, by highlighting and uplifting artists and musicians who are BIPOC or often underrepresented.
