LANSING, Mich. — Come to Scrapfest, one of Lansing's coolest art festivals and witness the amazing up-cycled and repurposed creations this year's artists bring!

This is a free-to-enter event! There will be:

  • A SCRAP METAL SCULPTURE COMPETITION ⚒
  • ECO-ART BOOTH VENDORS 🎨
  • MUSIC 🎶
  • PICNIC FOOD TRUCK 🚚
  • FAMILY & EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES 🎨

View the full schedule and detailed festival info here: https://scrapfest.com/scrapfest-11-infoand-schedule

There is no auction this year. Instead, we have worked out a price with each artist – both a discounted price leading up to and during the festival, and a full gallery price the pieces go up to after the festival is over – and the pieces are simply on sale. First come, first serve. View and inquire about buying the ScrapFest 11 sculptures here: https://scrapfest.com/scrapfest-11-pieces

10% of the proceeds from the sale of each sculpture in the competition and merchandise will go to this year's partner organization, Small Talk Children's Advocacy Center, which provides a comfortable environment for survivors of physical and sexual abuse to provide testimony during the investigation process.

WHEN
Friday July 12th, 6pm - 10pm
Saturday July 13th, 10am - 7pm

Sculptures will be juried and awards announced on Saturday July 13th at around 4:45pm.

WHERE
ScrapFest 11 is located on Turner St. in Old Town Lansing, Michigan (extending between E Cesar E. Chavez Ave. to Clinton St.).

PARKING
There is parking around the Old Town Lansing area, including in Cesar E. Chavez Plaza (on the corner of Turner St. and E Cesar E. Chavez Ave.), on Turner St. north of Clinton St., and there is meter parking along E Cesar E. Chavez.
