laafNow in its 36th year, Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) Lubeznik Art & Artisan Festival attracts thousands of shoppers and art enthusiasts to Michigan City's North End. Held on the third weekend in August, this festival features contemporary art, artist activations, beer and wine, and food. It draws repeat visitors from Chicago, South Bend and Northwest Indiana, as well as Michigan's nearby Harbor Country communities.

The festival, which was presented off-site for many years, is now held on the LCA grounds to immerse festival-goers in the LCA experience and to help visitors connect with our mission more effectively. Proceeds from the festival are invested back into the Michigan City community through artistic and educational programs LCA provides annually.

65-100 exhibitors will be selected and $3000 in cash prizes will be awarded. Jurors will be Doug Stapleton and Frank Connet. Mr. Stapleton is the associate Curator of the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery and a professional artist. Mr. Connet is a professional artist, teacher and owner of Textile Resoration Inc. in Chicago.
