Mayfest | LUX Center for the Arts | Art Gallery, Classes, Summer Camps & Outreach




LUX Center for the Arts invites you to celebrate Spring and Mother’s Day at Mayfest! An outdoor, family-friendly fundraiser for the LUX outreach program. Free admission.

Celebrate Spring with live music, delicious food and art activities for all ages. Dance around the Maypole and celebrate Mother’s Day with pottery and flowers!
