40th Annual Lakewood Arts Festival

For 40 years, the first Saturday of August has meant one thing… the Lakewood Arts Festival! This year the Lakewood Arts Festival will bring 165 wonderful artists and makers, 15,000 a and dozens of attendees, non-profits and community groups, musicians and entertainment and more great food to Lakewood on Detroit Avenue. The festival celebrates the beauty of the arts, the joy of creativity – and the spirit of community.

The festival kicks off at 10am and closes at 6pm. This year the festival has shifted its footprint and will run from St. Charles to Arthur along Detroit to accommodate the construction between St. Charles and Belle.


The Lakewood Arts Festival commemorates its landmark 40th Anniversary, with an exclusive print designed by Grey Cardigan artist Brian Andrew Jasinski of Lakewood. The 18”x24” lithograph is a limited edition run of 200, signed and numbered by the artist.

“I wanted to capture the visual of that first Saturday in August, when Detroit Avenue is lined with a village of white tents, boasting beautiful artwork from artists both local and national. As a board member, we are proud to curate the show with a roster of talent as diverse as those that attend the festival – ensuring everyone goes home with that perfect work of art." The print will be available at the festival booth at Warren and Detroit and will benefit the scholarship fund.
