It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of Lakeshore Art Festival 2020 due to health concerns over COVID-19. The PADNOS Public Art Project will still proceed and details for that will be forthcoming. We thank you for your understanding and support and look forward to seeing you in 2021!

For information regarding the Lakeshore Art Festival or for media inquiries, contact Event Director, Carla Flanders at artfest@muskegon.org or 231-724-3176.
