For the annual Lakewood Arts Festival that takes place on Saturday, Aug. 3, Lakewood will close Detroit Ave., between Belle to Arthur Ave. The free day-long juried festival will feature more than 180 regional and national artists and makers displaying paintings, prints, photography, art glass, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, fiber and more.

Originally founded in 1978 to bring artists to the city for a street festival, the festival funds an annual scholarship for Lakewood seniors continuing to art school. The event also funds grants for arts education and programming in the city.

Musical acts such as Punchdrunk Tagalongs, Senegalese drummer Assane M’baye, Luca Mundaca with Alexis Antes, Chris Allen, Ki Allen Jazz, Ballinloch, Cats on Holiday will perform, and a food court will be located in front of Lakewood Library on Detroit.

The event begins at 10 a.m. and continues until 6 p.m.
