In Celebration of Lake Superior Day!

In honor of Lake Superior Day, observed annually the third Sunday of July, Bayfield Festival of Arts will highlight the artists who incorporate materials that are sourced directly from the Big Lake. Those artists will be given a badge that says Lake Superior Sourced to display on their booth and will also be mentioned in the festival directory.

Examples of materials that are Lake Superior Sourced include:
Lake Superior agates, sea glass or basalt set in jewelry, painted or photographic images of Lake Superior, ceramics built with local clay
