A hub of culture, the Lakewood Arts Festival draws the attention of local — as well as national — artists. Prizes are awarded to the three best pieces, as well as the best artists. Muse over art of all kinds, ranging from jewelry to glass to photography. Live music is also included in the package. While you're there, pick up this year's T-shirt; a new design is created annually, and the money goes toward the fest's scholarship fund for high-school artists. The fest kicks off at 10 a.m. on Detroit Ave. between Elmood and Marlowe. (Cortni Dietz) lakewoodartsfest.org.
