Murals in Motion

May 15-19 2024 - ​ Picture this…gallery nights displayed inside charming boutiques, a paint-in from local artists creating and selling their wares along the sidewalks and lakefront park, music serenading you on the streets throughout the day, a pop up beer garden with live entertainment, yoga in the park, an alley way dinner featuring locally culinary talents, plus more family friendly activities…all while five major murals are being painted and installed throughout downtown. Watch art come alive honoring Lake Geneva’s local history, its beautiful landscape, and its iconic destination for all to enjoy as we live by the mantra of Pablo Picaso, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

Elkhorn Antique Flea Market

May 19 Welcome to the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market! You've obviously got the "antique bug" just like us. In fact, that's how the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market began in 1982. A set of collectors and antique dealers saw potential in a perfect setting at the Walworth County Fairgrounds for the start of something big. Not that you'd know it back then, when a good day was more than fifty dealers per show. Add another zero and you've got our current average of over 500 dealers! They bring with them a wide range of merchandise from furniture in the rough to fine refinished, glassware to pottery, advertising to linens, decoys to dolls, and everything else in between. Besides seasoned show dealers, grandpa's attic might show up in the back of a truck! The pickin' is great, and so are the people. So come on out for a real antiquing experience this season. No cyberspace here! Get a good look at what you want. Talk with our wonderful dealers. Ponder a decision over some great food…and go home happy!
