Our event helps bring a positive light to the thriving culture in Lake County. In addition to this, the event attendees patronize the businesses while they are here at the ArtsFest! They dine in our restaurants, have drinks at the local taverns, and shop in the stores and boutiques in Western Lake County.

Artsfest is a labor of love and we couldn't do it without the strong support of our sponsors and committee members. Mark your calendar now for the 28th Annual Artsfest on Saturday, July 22, 2019 ! Help us grow business in Western Lake County!
