Party in the Parks

Party in the Parks

The Party in the Parks events were initiated in the summer of 2013 to provide free community arts events in Union Plaza Park. Party in the Parks was expanded in 2015 to include other free performing and visual arts events in many different Lincoln parks throughout the summer months. In the fall of 2015, the City of Lincoln received the Nebraska Recreation and Park Association Arts and Humanities Award for the Party in the Parks on Union Plaza events. This award recognizes communities that offer an outstanding program in the arts & humanities.

"We want to thank the many community partners who come together to make Party in the Parks events happen," said Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson. "Party in the Parks are cooperative efforts that make Lincoln a fun place for residents and visitors."
