The Lakefront Art Festival attracts thousands of visitors from surrounding states to a festive, high-quality event held under shady trees in a grassy park on the shore of Lake Michigan. In 2010 they had 6000 visitors to the festival. Because the event is sponsored by the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, it is overseen by arts professionals, committed to making every aspect of the festival a quality venue for artists and visitors.

Why this should be of interest to you:
• small town art fair in the heart of vacation country
• advertising extends to Chicago, South Bend and Fort Wayne
• a weekend get away place for Chicagoans
• $3000 in artist prizes
• sponsored by an art center
• an art purchase program
• volunteers who understand artists' needs
• very reasonable booth fee
These days there is a lot of talk among artists about keeping their overhead down. One of the best ways is to exhibit at local events and the Lakefront Art Festival is in the heart of where a lot of artists live.
Expect a $125 booth fee and a $30 jury fee. When we are all talking about events that seem to forget
the artists this is a small show that "gets it". All of us need smaller shows to keep us going between the big ones. The Lakefront Art Festival could be one of those secret ones that everyone can appreciate.
Advertising will include press coverage, ads, and billboards throughout the area and through LaPorte County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
