The 2011 East Lansing Art Festival

May 3rd, 2011 by insideout

Hand crafted purses at the East Lansing Art Festival.

May 21-22, 2011, is the 48th Annual East Lansing Art Festival in downtown East Lansing. Allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy the festival – stay the weekend at our Lansing Bed and Breakfast.

Hundreds of artists descend upon East Michigan during the ELAF. They come from all over Michigan, and some even venture from other states. Their stalls feature all art mediums: jewelry, metalwork, photography, sculpture, paintings, ceramics, sculpture, woodwork. You may speak with the artists, purchase their creations, and in some cases watch them make their artwork.

No art festival is complete without live entertainment. The East Lansing Art Festival features a great variety of live music, as well as many different performances, demonstrations, and activities. Dance to the Bossa Nova sounds of Sheila Landis & Brazilian Love Affair; boogie down to Freddie Cunningham & The Root Doctor Band, and sway to Cloud Magic and their funky, jazzy, psychedelic sounds. Keep an eye out for Crazy Richard The Madd Juggler, too.

After spending the day on your feet at the East Lansing Art Festival, head back to our peaceful Bed and Breakfast near Lansing MI. Refresh yourself with a pint at the pub before dinner, or sit in our colorful English gardens for a spell. It’s delightful.

The East Lansing Art Festival

It isn’t too early to think about the 48th Annual East Lansing Art Festival, which takes place May 21 and 22, 2011. Our Lansing MI Bed and Breakfast tends to fill up during this event. In past years, the festival has brought well over 50,000 art lovers to the area.

Just think about it… this is an outdoor event, so by then there won’t be any snow on the ground. Imagine how warm it will be when we meander through the stalls of more than 200 artists. There will also be live music on two stages during the festival, and an international-style food court with lots of tasty dishes.

Outdoor Music and Film in East Lansing

July 12th, 2010 by insideout

Summer evenings were meant to be spent out of doors. With this thought in mind, the community of East Lansing is filling summer evenings with music and film. When next you stay at our elegant Lansing bed and breakfast, slip out for some cool entertainment under the stars.

Free live music fills Fountain Square in East Lansing on Friday nights, and Ann Street Plaza on Saturday nights. The concerts run from 7 to 9pm.

Free films are presented Thursday nights in Valley Court Park. Films start at 9:30 in July and 9pm in August, and live music begins an hour prior to the films.

Before the shows, enjoy dinner at our Lansing fine dining restaurant. Now that the weather is warm, we offer alfresco dining on our terrace. Live piano music will accompany your dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. Start with caviar for two and then share a Chateaubriand, accompanied by the perfect wine from our award-winning wine list. Then head to East Lansing for a splendid summer evening of music or movies.
