The 48th annual Lakefront Festival of Arts, which runs from Friday, June 18, to Sunday, June 20, is put on by the Friends of Art, volunteers who toil thanklessly in pursuit of cultural and artistic celebrations. This year's upcoming festival was featured on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Art City blog in a preview of June art events. With 181 artists displaying wares from across the artistic spectrum, there's no need to bring your own paintings of cats riding horses. Get there early on the first day if you're interested in finding a great piece to add panache to your home, and while you're there, have a chat with the piece's creator. If browsing the art is just a bonus on top of the wine garden, sculptural exhibits, and live entertainment, check the full schedule to plan your festival attack. Thanks to the PNC Children's Experience, there are things to keep kids occupied, with jugglers, mimes, and magicians roaming free on Saturday and Sunday, as well as child-centric musical performances on all three days. Check out the official program to view the myriad of attractions this year.
