Lakefront Festival of Art

For over fifty years, the Lakefront Festival of Art has been bringing art to life on Milwaukee’s lakefront. Started in 1963, this three-day fund-raising event has evolved from a gathering of a handful of artists to a vibrant, exciting, and wide-ranging festival with something for everyone. With close to 25,000 attendees and over 170 jury-selected artists from across the nation, the Lakefront Festival of Art is a fun-filled destination with art, food, music, and activities for the whole family. What you find here may surprise you. Named one of the top twenty art festivals in the country, the Lakefront Festival of Art is a showcase of paintings, ceramics, fiber, metalwork, jewelry, and more, all available in a broad range of prices.
