ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The mission of the ELAF is to enhance the sense of community and appreciation of art, culture and creativity in East Lansing and the greater Lansing region. The East Lansing Art Festival debuted in 1964 as Greenwich Village Days, a sidewalk art sale designed as a project for a student advertising club at Michigan State University. Later, the ELAF was presented as an event to spark interest in downtown East Lansing as a premier place to shop. In the 54 years since its inception, the Festival has morphed into a major community undertaking that presents hundreds of artists and craftspeople, attracts tens of thousands of visitors, and requires year-round efforts from hundreds of volunteers.
Please contact the ELAF for more information.
