Activity Participant

An activity participant will be involved in hosting an activity at Children’s Lane which will be pre-approved by the Lakeshore Art Festival Advisory Committee. Ideally we would like the activity to be free. For example, a non-profit entity could provide an activity, educational information or demonstration that provides a specific benefit and positive impact for children and/or families. If a fee is needed to cover the cost of the activity the fee must be minimal.


Our goal is to offer as many events and activities as we can for free. The only way we can do this is with generous support from sponsors. Please take a moment to consider supporting this community wide, family-friendly event. We’re creating family memories for years to come and with your generosity, families can make these memories without it being a burden on their finances. Plus, it’s a great way to get in front of thousands of West Michigan residence to show them that you support family fun!
