Founded in 1963, The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts is an annual arts education program of Lakewood Center for the Arts and is traditionally held at Lakewood Center and George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, and for the sake of the welfare of our artists and patrons, the 2021 Festival has transitioned from a large multi-exhibit Festival event to focus on one outdoor exhibit: Art in the Park. The festival will also host smaller events and programming throughout the year!
