Festival | August 20 & 21, 2016 | 10am-5pm (CDT) | On LCA grounds at 101 W. 2nd St.
AVANT Friday night preview | August 19 | Millennium Park, just north of LCA


LAAF is an eclectic and dynamic celebration of creativity, the LCA and Michigan City.

LAAF, along with the AVANT preview, serves as a major fundraiser for LCA with proceeds supporting LCA exhibitions, programs and educational outreach across the region throughout the year.


The Festival is now in it’s 35th year with an all-new concept! The Festival will include contemporary art galleries, artisans, food and drinks, music, and artist activations. The whole experience will be firmly anchored in LCA’s mission and vision: interweaving visual art, performance, culinary arts, artisans with an edgy, contemporary “alternative” sensibility.

LAAF, formerly held off-site, is now being held on the LCA grounds to help visitors connect with our mission more fully.

AVANT, a Friday night preview of the festival, will feature live musical entertainment and will provide a deeper immersion into the festival. More details to come!

LAAF Elements at a glance:

Contemporary Art: Galleries from Chicago, Indianapolis ando Detroit and beyond to bring the best in emerging and mid-career contemporary artists to Michigan City.

Artisans: LAAF will celebrate the creativity of “makers” in our region - everything from fine-craft and functional art to artisan goods and gourmet food items.

Craft Brews and Local Wineries: Enjoy beer and wine from local craft Breweries and wineries.

Food: Northwest Indiana is fully immersed in the food truck movement and we will celebrate our local chefs and restaurants - bringing the best in local flavor together for the weekend.

Music: We’ll have signature act during AVANT, our opening night event on the 19th, with local and regional bands to pepper the weekend with additional energy and soul.

Artist Activations and Interventions: LAAF will celebrate creativity and the creative process with unexpected moments and art-making in process.
