Theme, prices, ticketing criteria, and further details will come out as soon as we have them nailed down.

Don’t forget that we are accepting submissions for this year’s Effigy!

If you’re interested in building the effigy, please check out the details and submit an app!

Choose the Theme for 2018

Photo: Katelyn WolletBack in August we asked you for ideas for Lakes’ 2018 theme and we received hundreds of suggestions, many of them wildly imaginative. After much discussion, we’ve decided to go with Lakes of Fire: Trademark Brand.

Just kidding.

Our hard-working team lead volunteers met in Chicago to debate event-wide decisions for the coming year, and that team pored over the theme suggestions, narrowing down the list to five.

Now it’s time for the most important part of the process, your vote!

Your voice is essential. We’d love to see a hearty, positive debate as people decide what to vote for, so please share this with your attending friends, and let us all know why your selection is most appropriate for 2018. We want to see what ideas you brainstorm for how to turn your favorite theme into reality!

Please also respect your attendees and support our Communal Effort by not attempting to game the voting process – doing so may have consequences.

Our choices are:

  • Puzzle Pieces
  • X
  • Bedtime Stories
  • The 11th hour
  • Evolution


Voting will close on 11/16/17, at 11:59pm EST
