About the Lakeshore Art Festival

The Lakeshore Art Festival was reborn out of a former art and craft festival. We have made great strides in enhancing the quality of the show, put significant effort into marketing to both exhibitors and guests, and pride ourselves on the progress made thus far.

This is what a recent exhibitor said about the show: “The event far exceeded my expectations! Not only has the event turned around, but the downtown area as well. I’ve been doing craft events for nineteen years and usually as many as forty a year (twenty states so far). I say that to make this point. Never have I seen an event make such a dramatic turn for the positive. What a credit to you, your staff, and the community. Thank you for letting me be a part of it.”
