Begun as a crafts fair on the lawn of the Lakeland Public Library, MIDFLORIDA Mayfaire by-the-Lake has grown into one of Florida’s premier outdoor art festivals. Held on Mother’s Day weekend each year, Mayfaire is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Morton in downtown Lakeland, Florida. Mayfaire is one of the largest and oldest outdoor art festivals in Central Florida and is on Sunshine Artist magazine’s prestigious “Best 200 Art Shows” list. Come see why it has such a great reputation!
Bring your lawn chairs or blankets for a free party on the shores of Lake Mirror, just two blocks north of Lake Morton. This event includes fireworks and the Mayfaire Classic 5K Race. (For more information about the race, contact Lakeland Runners Club.) Food vendors will be available on site, or you can pack your own and have an evening picnic!
Volunteers are always needed. To volunteer for Mayfaire, call 863.688.7743, ext. 237.
