Now in its 36th year, Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) “Lubeznik Art & Artisan Festival” attracts thousands of shoppers and art enthusiasts to Michigan City's North End. Held on the third weekend in August, this festival features contemporary art, artist activations, family activities and food. It draws repeat visitors from Chicago, South Bend and Northwest Indiana, as well as Michigan's nearby 'Harbor Country' communities. The festival, was presented off-site for many years, is now held on the LCA grounds to immerse festival-goers in the LCA experience and to help visitors connect with our mission more effectively.

The Mission of Lubeznik Art and Artisan Festival (LAAF) is to celebrate and foster the appreciation of a dynamic array of contemporary artists and artisans through the exhibition and sale of contemporary art in a festival setting. LAAF serves as a major fundraiser for LCA with proceeds supporting our exhibitions, programs and educational outreach across the region throughout the year.
