Muskegon Chamber of Commerce takes over planning of historic art fair

Muskegon Chamber of Commerce takes over planning of historic art fair

The Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce announced today that they are working in partnership with the Community Foundation for Muskegon County and Muskegon Festival Group to reorganize and invigorate the successful art and crafts fair associated with the former Muskegon Summer Celebration.

Many local chambers of commerce successfully manage art fairs. “We are excited to take over the ownership and management of this important summer event,” says Cindy Larsen, President of the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce. The event is being renamed the Lakeshore Art Festival and will be held July 5 and 6, 2013 in downtown Muskegon.

The name has been changed to the Lakeshore Art Festival because it will not only include the traditional juried “Art in the Park” event in Hackley Park, but also an enhanced major craft fair with food, children’s’ activities and much more. It will be held in conjunction with the new music festival taking place at Heritage Landing.
