FAMILY ART ACTIVITIES
It’s a family affair! Team up with festival-goers to create a temporary public art piece, learn hula hoop dancing, discover how to program Ozobots, make origami projects and more!
Saturday night (5-8PM) wind down the day with live music and a cash bar. Our very own Open Mic King, Tim Rounds, will host a show of the best musicians from our annual open mic events to perform in the Hyndman Gallery. You will not want to miss this!
Shoreline Brewery, 100 Washington, Hero’s Hot Dogs, and Cabo’s Ice Cream offer a delicious array of foods for all tastes.

We’ve reduced the ticket price to $5 at the gate! Admission is FREE to LCA Members, children 16 & under and active military personnel with ID.
HELP THE COMMUNITY
All the festival proceeds are invested back into the community to support educational and outreach programs that LCA provides year-round. The Michigan City Public Art Committee (MAC) is generously sponsoring free tickets to after school program families, helping LCA make the arts more accessible.
FREE PARKING AND SHUTTLE

THINGS TO NOTE
Though we love animals, please leave your four-legged friends at home when visiting the Festival. If you choose to leave the Festival grounds, remember to get your hand stamped at the exit gate and reenter the same day at zero charge.
