The Garrett Lakes Arts Festival 2021 Season!
We hope to return with LIVE performances for remainder of the 2021 season. Times and dates are subject to change based on local and state health regulations.
Garrett Lakes Arts Festival began with a vision of a music festival in Garrett County.
In December 1986, a group of Garrett County residents gathered to explore that vision and a related proposal from local resident Kathryn Sincell and violinist Erick Friedman. The joint desire was to promote cultural and artistic activities in the county and to rekindle the Mountain Chautauqua spirit, once a hallmark of Garrett County life. A core of 22 citizens evolved from the originators, many of whom remained in leadership roles, serving with dedication and distinction in the ensuing years. GLAF is a non-profit 501(3)(C) corporation.
