The West Shore Art Fair is sponsored by the Ludington Area Center for the Arts and is a juried fine arts and crafts show...which means a more stringent criteria is used and only the highest-quality artists are admitted. In 2016, juried artists were accepted to display paintings, photography, jewelry, clay, glass, fiber and wood, and many other varieties of fine art. In addition to the artists' exhibit booths, the fair features live musical performances, food stations and a children's activity area and location where children can purchase art for just $5.

Downtown Ludington hosts several arts and crafts fairs throughout the year. The summer fairs are especially popular, being held outdoors in Rotary Park (formerly City Park) at 400-500 West Ludington Avenue. It's the perfect location to browse the arts and crafts by local vendors, and then walk just a short distance either to beautiful Stearns Park to enjoy the Lake Michigan shoreline, or walk a short distance the opposite way to browse many friendly Ludington stores and experience great restaurants.
