Chautauqua-Wawasee is rescheduling the annual Oakwood Fine Arts Festival from June 13 to August 15. This decision came after discussing multiple dates, including the original date, with each of the Artists who plan to show their art. The Artists expressed the importance of shows like Oakwood’s, saying they are critically important to the artists who rely on them as selling opportunities. With most of the large shows canceled, they are excited about Oakwood’s show because of Oakwood Resort’s beautiful outdoor venue and the large attendance of summer vacationers who flock to the show. This Festival brings together 20+ local and regional artists from around the northern Indiana and southern Michigan area. The event runs from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Food vendors are onsite for snacks and lunch, with outside seating available. Also, Oakwood’s Pier and Back Porch restaurant offers a full menu with both indoor and outdoor lakefront dining. Attendance is free. Ample parking is available.
