ABOUT OUR SHOW
The Lake Odessa Area Arts Commission invites artists and artisans to apply to our annual one-day fine arts and crafts festival.
Lake Odessa is conveniently located midway between Lansing and Grand Rapids, MI, on the shores of beautiful Jordan Lake.
Celebrating its 43rd year in 2017, Art in the Park takes place on the grounds of Lake Odessa's shady and picturesque Village Park, while the annual Lake Odessa Car Show is held just a few blocks away in the downtown business district. Our show features 70+ unique fine art and craft booths, food booths, a children's craft area, and live musical entertainment. Attendance is free.

Applications to Art in the Park are juried for acceptance to ensure the quality of the entries and to maintain a varied selection of arts and crafts. It is the goal of LOAAC to give artists a positive experience while participating in our show.
The ParkPrize! Competition will return for a third year, and is open to all participating artists. Following the jury process and acceptance into the show, artists may apply to enter one piece of artwork for a chance to win one of two awards: the $500 People's Choice Award and the $500 Best of Show Award.
The deadline to submit ParkPrize! applications was June 16, 2017.
We hope you will enjoy your time with us as we work to make Art in the Park one of the premier shows in Michigan!
