LowellArts invites you to the 53rd annual, 2-day arts festival held in picturesque Fallasburg Park, located approximately 20 miles east of Grand Rapids in Lowell, MI. The event features fine art and fine craft booths, food booths, children’s activities, and music performed on an outdoor stage. Fallasburg Park is located at 1124 Fallasburg Rd, Lowell, MI 49331. The event is free and parking is $5 per car.

On a central, outdoor stage, a variety of musical live entertainment will be showcased both days of the event. Saturday’s performers include Eli Roe Music, Hawks and Owls, The Weatherheads, Paddy’s Cure, and the Bruce Matthews Band. Sunday’s performers include Easy Idle String Band, Blue Water Ramblers, B-Side Growlers, The Adams Family, and The Wild Honey Collective.

  • Annual Raffle: Enter to win this year’s beautiful quilt, by Mary Kidwell Tobin, or one of over 75 artist-made items donated by this year’s festival artists.
  • Children’s Activities: Free pumpkins will be available, one per child, for kids to take home to decorate. Children are also invited on a Fallasburg Scavenger Hunt!
  • Food Booths: The Fallasburg Arts Festival is a major annual fundraiser for LowellArts as well as for many other community non-profits who raise funds through food sales and donations.
