The Lakefront Art Festival will be held on August 15 (10 AM - 6 PM) and August 16 (10 AM - 5 PM) on the lakefront in Washington Park, Michigan City, IN. Over just 100 exhibitors will be accepted into the festival and there will be $3,000 in cash prizes awarded to participating artists.

Now in its 34th year, the festival attracts thousands of shoppers and art enthusiasts to Michigan City's lakefront Washington Park. This high-quality, juried event draws repeat visitors from Chicago, South Bend and Northwest Indiana, as well as Michigan's nearby 'Harbor Country' communities. Patrons to the festival include second home-owners in the nearby beach communities. In 2014, over 4,000 visitors attended the festival. A major fundraiser for LCA, the festival is overseen by arts professionals with friendly and helpful staff and volunteers who are committed to making it a success. Over $30,000 is budgeted to market the event through partnerships that span radio, TV, print and outdoor media. Proceeds benefit LCA exhibits, outreach, and education.
