Lakeside Chautauqua
July 16-22, 2016
Lakeside Welcomes Boaters & Artists
A collaborative effort blending the craftsmanship of the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show and the artistic expression of the Plein Air Art Festival will create one of Lakeside's most unique weekends of the summer from July 15-17.

This three-day event begins on Friday, July 15 when more than 30 plein air artists from across the Midwest arrive to paint outdoor landscapes until Sunday, July 17.

The term "en plein air" means painting "in the open air." The artists will be painting scenes throughout the entire community, especially lakefront landscapes. All are invited to watch them paint.  

On Sunday, the Lakeside waterfront will transform into an outdoor showroom of classic wooden boats, as cruisers line the dock and the lawn of Hotel Lakeside for the 13th Annual Lakeside Wooden Boat Show from 12-4 p.m.
