Summer Art Fairs in Ludington

Downtown Ludington hosts several arts and crafts fairs throughout the year. The summer fairs are especially popular, being held outdoors in Rotary Park (formerly City Park) at 400-500 West Ludington Avenue. It’s the perfect location to browse the arts and crafts and then walk just a short distance either to beautiful Stearns Park to enjoy the Lake Michigan shoreline, or walk a short distance the opposite way to browse many friendly Ludington stores and experience great restaurants.
