One of Wisconsin’s longest running and most revered art festivals, the Green Lake Fine Art Show celebrates 50 years this year, attracting the best talent from around the Midwest as it moves down the street to the center of town on the lawn of Town Square Community Center on August 12 and 13.

When the event was launched in 1973 by local artist Guy Rossberg, the Vietnam War had just ended, Nixon was president, Andy Warhol was painting Mao, Led Zepplin attracted a record concert crowd, and Billie Jean King was playing Bobby Riggs in the battle of the sexes.

In Green Lake, the streets were lined with hardware stores, pharmacies, variety stores, and grocery stores, all surrounding the historic courthouse building, its lawn a well-known hangout for local hippies. Today, boutiques and restaurants line the streets of Green Lake and the historic courthouse is now a thriving, community-funded community center called Town Square. While the hippies are long gone from the lawn of the former courthouse, their spirit of creativity and freedom lives on through the Green Lake Fine Art Fair.

Now organized by Town Square, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever. It features an art camp for children during the preceding week, talks on and by famous artists, live music, food, and of course, the work of some of the best artists from the Midwest, including painting, sculpture, watercolor, ceramics, photography, wood, glass, and fine jewelry.

Join us for a weekend celebrating all things arts in the heart of beautiful Green Lake.
Aug 12, 2023 – Aug 13, 2023. Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
