Art Escape Applications and Ad Sheets Available

Deadline to Apply: April 15, 2024

Art Escape: Sept. 7-15, 2024

We are excited for the third annual Art Escape, September 7-15, 2024. In 2022, the Bayfield Chamber and Visitor Bureau launched Art Escape, a nine- day "celebration of all things art" across Bayfield County and Madeline Island.

Last year, Art Escape generated $3 million dollars in economic impact for Bayfield County and Madeline Island. We are ecstatic with these second-year numbers crushing our first year's economic impact of $750,000.

The Bayfield Chamber and Visitor Bureau is putting together an artist and event guide for the week which will be distributed to target markets in July. Please look over the advertising opportunities available in this guide. We greatly appreciate your support for this growing art initiative across Bayfield County and Madeline Island.
