ArtsFest is July 15th!

The 32nd Annual Downtown Willoughby ArtsFest, hosted by the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce, is Saturday, July 15th from 10 am – 5 pm.

The streets of Downtown Willoughby will be closed and lined with over 90 juried artists featuring an assortment of artistic pieces from paintings to mixed media. Throughout the event, musical entertainment will be provided at the gazebo. Specialty food trucks and vendors will be set up throughout the festival for a quick snack. You will also be able to dine at the amazing restaurants in downtown Willoughby.

Each year, ArtsFest continues to evolve as a celebration of arts and culture adding artists and entertainment. We offer a children’s section that gives kids of all ages a chance to have a hands-on experience with art. See you there!
