FOGP Signature Events
There are a lot of happenings at Garfield Park. We encourage you to connect with all the activity centers at the park on Facebook so you can stay in-the-know about everything from the theme of the Art for All FREE program held on Saturdays at Garfield Park Art Center (GPAC) to special installations and educational programs happening at the Conservatory. There is also a Farmer’s Market located in the park on Saturday mornings during the summer months and a range of Christmas celebrations and programs for all ages starting right after Thanksgiving each year.
This web page is where we feature the Signature Events either produced or hosted by the Friends of Garfield Park, Inc. as part of our efforts to raise funds and friends and celebrate them in support of our mission to serve the oldest city park in Indiana.
A great park deserves great friends. Please Join us!
