Dear Culver Families and Friends,

This year’s 37th Annual Culver Lakefest is quickly approaching!

Covid put a hold on our plans last year, but luckily fireworks were still in the cards for Culver thanks to the Culver Chamber of Commerce and Culver residents for making such a grand 4th of July display. Because of the amazing support and generosity of the community for fireworks last year, the Lakefest Committee, Culver Chamber of Commerce, and Culver Academies Woodcraft Camp thought it would be a great idea to move the date of Lakefest to a coordinating 4th of July weekend to combine these two very special events into one GRAND nostalgic and meaningful celebration for our great community.

The theme this year is “Beauty to the Max”, as we honor past and present Miss Maxinkuckee Pageant winners in its 50th year. We are looking for past Miss Max winners to ride in our Parade Marshal Float as well as to judge various events at the festival.

This year we have featured events such as The Miss Maxinkuckee Pageant, a Waves of Freedom Run, talent show, Live Music, Culver Union Township Fire Department water ball contest, craft and commercial booths, frog race, watermelon eating contest, turtle race, sand castle building contest, car show, nostalgic parade, Miss Max Dunk Tank, Yoga on the Beach, Cornhole Tournament, and much more. Don't forget the FIREWORKS which will be on display at 10PM over beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee on Saturday July 3rd.

The Culver Lakefest Committee needs your help in making these events possible. If you are interested in donating your time towards the festival, please email the Lakefest Committee at
