About

Clark Park Music and Arts community has been putting on festivals in Clark Park in West Philadelphia for 40 years. The Festival traditionally happens on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox annually. The festival is time to celebrate West Philly generally and includes both rock and non-rock acts, kids activities, arts and crafts and vendors.

A Little Bit of History…
Since 1970, the Clark Park Music and Arts Festival has been a neighborhood tradition at 43rd and Chester Ave. The Festivals provide an excellent forum for residents to meet their neighbors and benefit from the artistic wealth of Philadelphia. Responding to the needs of a changing community, the Festival has grown in scope.

Today the Festival includes children’s events and activities, arts and crafts vending, a greater diversity of performances to include all kinds of music, dance and theater, and a chance for non profit organizations to reach out to the neighborhood about all sorts of issues. Volunteers of all kinds from anywhere are encouraged to participate.
