The Arts Center organized the inaugural event, a STEAM Family Fun Day, in March of 2017. The event included several community partners and attracted over 300 youth and parents. It continued to grow in 2018 and took another large leap forward by teaming up with iMAGINE on the 2019 event.
The festival now serves the entire Lakelands region, bringing on many more exhibitors and attendees. It is now billed as the iMAGINE Lakelands STEAM Festival; fueled by the Arts Center of Greenwood.
