Only one Michigan festival can claim the title as the best art fair in the country.

Lakeshore Art Festival was named one of the winners of the America’s Best Art Fair Awards competition.

The family-friendly festival was one of 10 winners of juried art fairs nationwide after voting by art fair patrons, fine art collectors and the public who attend art shows and festivals nationwide via a national online survey from Art Fair Calendar.

“The Lakeshore Art Festival has always been popular among art fair lovers in the Muskegon area, but our 8th annual national Best Art Fair Awards survey proves that both art collectors and artists nationwide love it, too,” said Connie Mettler, publisher of “We’re happy to give an ‘America’s Best Art Fair Award’ to the Lakeshore Art Festival today.”

“We are so thrilled to be the only Michigan festival to make the top 10 list,” said Carla Flanders, Lakeshore Art Festival director. “Standing alongside art festival greats from Chicago to Park City, this recognition by our patrons and artists not only boosts our local pride, but it shines a light on the Muskegon Lakeshore area on a national scale.”

The next Lakeshore Art Festival is scheduled for July 3-4.
