On the Saturday of every Memorial Day Weekend, the City of Lafayette and the ‘Round the Fountain Art Fair Committee welcome you to the ‘Round the Fountain Art Fair, an annual destination location that features up to 100 artists from around the nation, showcasing their talent and works in a variety of pieces and media.
The ‘Round the Fountain Art Fair committee awards participating artists purchase awards, awards of excellence and merit awards. Each year, a piece of art is purchased by the committee to continue the permanent collection exhibited in the halls of the Tippecanoe County Courthouse, which is a work of art in itself.
Proceeds from the fair support fine arts education in the five area public schools, after-hours arts programs, courthouse restoration projects, the restoration of the Marquis de Lafayette Fountain, outside lighting and seating, landscaping, and public art projects and installation.
