LCFF is thrilled to bring back our 4th Annual “Music in the Mini Park”. This series funded in part through the City’s “Put Arts in the Park” initiative continues to attract great music and performers. While the venue may be a challenge, it is always inspiring to see people come out for these free concerts and watch as thousands of commuters realize that “Something is happening in Lake City”. Our sound wizard, Monica Sweet will be back in action and a big thank you to the Lake City Arts and Culture Committee member, Debbie Palmer, for creating the line-up. Don’t miss it!

The Lake City Collective (LCC) has formed to create a unified voice among the mosaic of cultures in the Lake City neighborhood to increase capacity and political agency among communities of color, immigrants and refugees. The group is working to build bridges across the diverse Lake City Community to begin to build consensus on and advocate for shared needs and goals in the many public and nonprofit planning processes that are actively seeking their input.

Community leaders Peggy Hernandez, Cesar Garcia and Tsegay Berhe, established the Lake City Collective to build the capacity of marginalized populations to address issues like economic development, affordable housing, displacement, early learning, across the ages programing, and all aspects of livability in our Community.
