Third Fridays

Introducing the Chesterton Arts District and Summer Third Fridays:
A Collective of Creativity in Chesterton

The Chesterton Arts District is a vibrant collective of arts-aligned organizations and creative businesses dedicated to promoting and nurturing the arts in the Duneland community. This new initiative aims to champion a thriving arts scene and position Chesterton as a regional destination for creativity, culture, and inspiration.

With historic charm and location to nearby Indiana Dunes National Park, Chesterton provides an ideal backdrop for the arts.  From renowned artists to emerging talents, everyone can find a place to express themselves and engage with the arts in meaningful ways.

The current partners of the CAD include 4th Street Theater, Chesterton Art Center, Chelle's Boutique and Garage, Holly Jackson Art Studio and Gallery, Moth Wing Studio, Pieces of Jayde, Red Cup Café and Deli, South Shore Tattoo, Stephanie Swanson Jewelry Design, Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop, Duneland Pottery, The IN Coast, Third Coast Spice Café, Three Moons Fireworks, Three Wicked Apples, Trusty Spot Records & Tees, Westchester Township History Museum, Willow, and The Chesterton European Market. 

District partners are launching Summer Third Fridays featuring programs, events, and happenings at downtown district locations that will stay open until 7pm or later June 16, July 21, and August 18.


Mark your calendars now for creative evenings featuring workshops, artmaking, gallery talks, live music, restaurant promotions, walking tours, open studios, and more!
