Welcome to the website for the
Lakeville Arts Council (LAC)
This site attempts to share with you our ongoing mission to encourage and support the arts as a vital part of our community. The Arts allow us to become who we can be. Imagine the world without music, dance, literature or art. The LAC strives to support all forms of culture within our community so everyone can experience culture in its many diverse forms.
The LAC accomplishes our mission through various programs, i.e.: the Cultural Presentation Series which occurs at the Lakeville Public Library, “Made In Lakeville” Holiday Craft and Gift Sale, Open Studio held periodically in late spring, and our major annual event in its 11th year, the Lakeville Arts & Music Festival scheduled for Saturday, October 3. Check out the FESTIVAL PAGE for details.
Be sure to check each page of this website to learn when and where each event will take place. Plus be sure to LIKE us on Facebook.

Where is Center Stage? If you have been to any of the last ten annual Lakeville Arts & Music Festivals, you know where the stage is. If you have not been, the stage is located across the driveway on the grass in front of the Lakeville Public Library between the two retention ponds and behind the white building. It is now a permanent stage thanks to the past ten years of donations during the Lakeville Arts & Music Festival.
Bring your folding chair or a blanket and bring a friend or two for a FREE evening of musical entertainment.
If the weather is expected to be rainy, we will move into the Library’s meeting Room!!! Eating and drinking soft drinks is still allowed inside the Meeting Room.
