Flat Iron Park is located on the Geneva Lake lakefront between Center Street and Wrigley Drive just south of Main Street in downtown Lake Geneva, WI. The City of Lake Geneva is a summer resort area frequented by affluent crowds from the Chicago and Milwaukee areas. Many of these visitors stay in the four hotels on the east side of the park and in the large condominium residence to the north. The shopping district is just a block away. These visitors look forward to Art in the Park each year. Complimentary parking will be reserved for our exhibitors adjacent to the park. This area will be closed off to traffic during unloading & loading.
