Now in its fifty-third year, the Midsummer Festival of the Arts has been a Sheboygan tradition for finding special works of art and meeting their makers. Artist booths will feature paintings, photographs, jewelry, wearables, wood carvings, ceramics, glass, leather goods, textiles, and more.

This event also offers live music and performances, hands-on art making, demonstrations, food, and fun on the grounds of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and Sheboygan’s City Green.

 The event will feature up to 100 juried artists including returning award winners from last year. The Arts Center will also host an emerging artist area for up to five artists, offering an opportunity for collegiate and rising artists to learn about business in the arts. In response to the exhibition on view during the festival, Cloth as LandHmong Indigeneity, and in celebration of the Sheboygan Hmong Summer Festival happening the same weekend, an additional minimum of five artists of Hmong heritage will be selected to be featured inside the Arts Center. The Arts Center may also designate additional spaces for local and community partnerships coordinated and selected by Arts Center staff.
