ArtsFest engages area children in a free arts festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lake Charles Civic Center’s Exhibition Hall. This event is hosted annually by the Arts Council of SWLA and the City of Lake Charles, and it encourages creative expression through hands-on art projects.

Local businesses and organization will host booths where children can craft fun and creative pieces of art. Children can take home all of their art projects which cover a wide range of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, and crafts while assisted by volunteers. 

ArtsFest showcases the wildly popular one-on-one pottery lessons, assorted crafts, fun snacks, live music, storytelling and other entertainment scheduled throughout the four hour event.

For more information about ArtsFest, call the Arts Council office at (337) 439-2787 or visit www.artscouncilswla.org.
