Capital Lakefair Guide 2018


Capital Lakefair celebrates 61 years of service to our community in 2018. It was created as an event to celebrate waterfront activities and bring people to the downtown and lakefront core of the city. It’s been a marvelous success, growing in size and attendance every year. Today, Lakefair carries an annual budget of nearly $300,000. Approximately 200,000 people attend, while 10,000 to 12,000 watch the downtown Lakefair parade.

Where's my printed copy?

In response to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, and following the recommendations of the CDC and other officials, we have suspended the distribution of printed copies until further notice.

Although you will not find copies of OLY ARTS on the tables of your favorite coffee shop, restaurant, theatre, etc., we will continue publishing high quality articles for free here online.

We are a small, independent community publication. In order to meet our mission and provide the best possible free arts coverage in our community, we rely on partnerships with local arts supporters and organizations.

If you feel that continued coverage of our local arts and culture is important to you, please join our list of supporters by making a small contribution.

I know that we will make it through this uncertain time if we continue to focus on what’s important — the health, safety and stability of our local communities and populations.
