Our Mission:

The Culver Lakefest team is an all-volunteer, non-profit group committed to giving back to the Culver Community by raising funds to plan and host a weekend of family-friendly activities and entertainment, and by offering opportunities for community groups, civic organizations and businesses to raise funds to help them achieve their goals.

The lakefest committee Thanks you

We greatly appreciate all of our donors and sponsors thus far who have contributed to making this year’s festival possible. We are almost at our goal fundraising amount, which will allow us to afford the festival and all the activities and entertainment that we have lined up.

It is widely believed that Lakefest donations are all for fireworks, but your donations go toward so much more than that. About 50% of donations/sponsorships go toward fireworks and other entertainment, roughly 5% go toward festival events such as Miss Maxinkuckee, Family Games and the Car Show, approximately 25% is used for marketing, and about 20% of donations are used for operational needs such as additional bathrooms in the park, electricity, security, trash and clean up detail, insurance, etc. Again, we are not yet at our goal fundraising amount, which means we need your help! Note that the Culver Lakefest fundraising request is different and separate from the Culver Chamber requests for the Chamber-sponsored fireworks on July 3.

Donate to Lakefest today by sending a check to Culver Lakefest at P.O. Box 146, Culver, IN, 46511. Checks must be made out to Culver Lakefest and sent to the listed P.O. Box. You can also donate to Lakefest through our Paypal @culverlakefest2022.
