Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts
August 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 18, 2019
Join in August 2019 for the 49th annual Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts. It is considered one of the top outdoor fine art festivals in the Midwest. It is held on the beautiful shores of Fowler Lake at Fowler Park in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. This volunteer-run Festival works hard to make this a rewarding event for both the artists and attendees. You are invited to apply to the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts to fill one of the 135 valued booth spaces. The show features 135 artists from all over the United States, in Ceramics (Functional or Decorative), Drawing/Pastels, Fiber/Leather, Glass, Graphics/Printmaking, Jewelry, 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Painting (watercolor, oil or acrylic), Photography, Sculpture/Metal and Wood.
The Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts is held the third full weekend in August from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. It has been named one of the 100 best art fairs in the country by Sunshine Magazine. Patrons can enjoy various musical groups on three stages scattered throughout the park. Families are encouraged to create their own works of art in the Children’s Area adjacent to the Children’s Stage. Everyone will find delicious treats provided by local community organizations at the Food Pavilion.
*There is a free shuttle service from area parking lots, and the Pontoon shuttle is a favorite of the Lake Country Family Fun family! My girls love trekking across Fowler Lake to the festival. I’m sure yours will, too!

We took the pontoon shuttle courtesy of @boathouseh2o to the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts, a favorite tradition of ours. We made art, saw art, and bought art. 💕 . . . . . #lovelcff #oconomowocfestivalofthearts #oconomowocwi #oconomowoc #boathouselakecountry #lakecountryfamilyfun #wisconsinsummer #wisconsin
