Culinary Studio

Welcome to the Donna Vestal Culinary Studio! The renovations were made possible by our dear Patron Donna Vestal.

 Culinary Studio Event Rentals

The culinary studio can be used for event rentals. Organizations who book events with Lakeside must follow the culinary studio checklist, and the caterers or restaurants must provide their current sanitation certificate to utilize the kitchen.

Private custom culinary classes can be created for business events and private parties. Contact Dawn Wilkinson the Finance & Operations Manager at Dwilkinson@LakesideArtsPark.org or 815-455-8000 for rates and custom programs.

If you are a chef with culinary schooling, a current health, and safety sanitation license, and are interested in partnering with Lakeside for a future culinary program, contact Dawn Wilkinson the Finance & Operations Manager at Dwilkinson@LakesideArtsPark.org or 815-455-8000 for more information.
