East Lansing Art Festival Performance Program

The East Lansing Art Festival offers an eclectic mix of original and traditional live music. Preference is given to local performers with a focus on a wide range of diverse musical styles including Folk, Original Rock, Jazz, Blues, Celtic and more. The East Lansing Art Festival is a non-profit arts and cultural event that presents these live performances free of charge to the public thanks to generous sponsorships from area businesses and a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.  For more information on how you can contribute to this program contact us at info@elartfest.com or visit our get involved page.
