ScrapFest began as a scrap metal artwork competition, and has grown into a full art festival that focuses on up-cycled and repurposed artwork. Now, the festival has not only the scrap metal sculpture competition, but also eco-art booth vendors, family activities, live music, food, The Great Scrap Run 8k run/walk (with family fun run), and a Refashion Show!
For the competition portion, teams get an hour to pick up to 500 lbs (or 250 lbs for the Small Piece category) of metal from Friedland Industries’ processing plant in Old Town Lansing, and then get a month to create a sculpture. The pieces are auctioned off in Old Town Lansing on Turner St in mid July.
70% of the proceeds go to the artists, 20% goes to ScrapFest, and 10% of the proceeds go to a local charity
