Lakefront Live is a series of FREE entertainment at the Downtown Columbia Lakefront!

CA is bringing back all of your favorites – like movies, local music acts and Dancin’ Under The People Tree.

But this year, you’re invited to a new series of internationally-recognized acts produced by the Columbia Festival of the Arts. This exciting lineup is all about celebrating the incredible diversity we enjoy here in Columbia. Plus, some of your favorite local restaurants are curating food and drink menus curated exclusively for these events. 

So come out. Kick back. Sit up. Get down. Whatever you choose, you have a place at the Lakefront.
