Ann Arbor Art Fairs in Downtown Ann Arbor

The streets of downtown Ann Arbor are overflowing with art July 16-19, 2014 when this annual shebang returns for three days of family fun

Instead of a day trip to one art fair, why not make a weekend out of it and visit four? From July 16 until 19, 2014, join the more than 500,000 other art lovers for three days of art and fun on the streets of downtown Ann Arbor during the Ann Arbor Art Fairs.

Four fairs, Ann Arbor Street Fair "The Original," Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair, State Street Area Art Fair and Ann Arbor's South University Art Fair will share the streets of Ann Arbor and fill them with artwork from local artists and tons of family fun.

"The Original" art fair will feature work from featured artist Nick Wroblewski, among others, and will be full of street performances, street painting art activity zones – with a kids art fair – and tons of other fun stuff for kids.

The Ann Arbor Summer Fair will exhibit works from independent artists and will allow attendees to have the opportunity to interact with artists, while the State Street Area will feature contemporary works and Arbor South University Art Fair exhibits pieces directly tied back to Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan.

The 10th annual Townie Street Party, which takes place 5-9:30 p.m. on July 14 kicks off the event with performances by Black Jake & The Carnies, Driving Sideways and many more. Plus, there's face painting, vendors and more!

Event times are as follows:

  • Wednesday-Friday: 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

The fairs are free. Some artwork and merchandise will be available for purchase.

See the Metro Parent calendar listing for more on the Ann Arbor Art Fairs.
