Produced by the Art Festival Board of Directors under the auspices of the East Lansing Arts Commission/City of East Lansing

Established in 1964, the East Lansing Art Festival is held every spring during the weekend prior to the Memorial Holiday weekend. The popular Festival attracts 70,000-80,000 attendees from across the region. In addition to the 230 juried exhibitors emerging artists are also invited to participate through a competitive selection process.

East Lansing is a charming University town with a wide variety of shops, restaurants, galleries and the beautiful Michigan State University campus across the street.

What to expect:

  • Free performances on two stages highlighting a wide variety of music
  • Free arts activities for children and families
  • An international-style food court

Having exhibited in this art fair ourselves here is what else you will like:

  • well-educated visitors, unaffected by the economic downturn in the State; professional people from State government and the University
  • well-planned entertainment that enhances the art rather than distracts from it
  • a festive mood as this is the kickoff of the art fair season
  • affiliation with the Public TV and radio stations, bringing the right people to you
  • a well-seasoned staff who “get it”
  • easy load in and out

New this year:
The East Lansing Art Festival launches an Artist Welcome Wagon Program as a way to let our exhibiting artists know that we appreciate them and want to help them to be successful at our Festival!

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Visit: for more information.
