The 2020 Lakeville Arts & Music Festival which would have been our 16th year is cancelled as a result of the Governor’s Regulations due to COVID19. We hope to see everyone on October 2 in 2021!!
Everyone enjoyed a day of community, arts, handmade one-of-kind crafts, a variety of music, had the opportunity to take a selfie with a scarecrow of your choice, and much more at the 15th annual event on October 5 sponsored by the Lakeville Arts Council!
