Greater Lansing Festival Alliance
The greater Lansing region is home to more than 100 local festivals and annual events that celebrate art and culture and traditions old and new, through exhibits, performances, cultural activities, educational opportunities and more. These popular festivals and events, some of which are nationally recognized, attract nearly half a million people from near and far, making greater Lansing an attractive and vibrant place to live, work and play.
To spotlight and support these many festivals and placemaking events, and their legacies, the greater Lansing Festival Alliance was formed as a seperate entity in 2009 with the help of the Arts Council. In 2016, the Festival Alliance was incorporated into the Arts Council's full membership, and it now has its largest number of collaborative alliance members ever, with nearly 40 local festivals and their organizers coming together to celebrate in the greater Lansing area.
Every year, hundreds of community members help make metro Lansing rich with festivals by volunteering their services. If there is a festival you would like to volunteer for, please contact the individual festival's website for information or visit the Festival Alliance's open community volunteer Facebook page.
