Next week is the start of one of Ann Arbor’s favorite annual events: The Ann Arbor Art Fairs. This is a fantastic time of year when artists from all over the country come together to showcase their best work and put on the area’s best art show. The Ann Arbor Art Fairs is actually a combination of 4 juried fairs, including the original Ann Arbor Street Fair, the State Street Area Art Fair, the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair, and Ann Arbor’s South University Art Fair. These fairs have made the Top 10 Fairs list every year since 2004, and have received countless accolades. In its 52nd year, this year’s fairs promise to be at the top for 2011!
Kicking off the Ann Arbor Art Fairs is the Townie Street Party on Monday, July 18th from 5-9:30 on Washington St. between Thayer & Fletcher. This fundraiser will feature live music, food, drinks, and free art activities for the kids. If you’d like to celebrate in style, you can enjoy the festivities from The Terrace, a covered VIP lounge with hors d’oeuvres and a private bar.
Once the fairs begin, attendees will be entertained and impressed with fine art in every medium presented by over 1100 artists, street performances, art activity zones, artist demos, The Fountain Stage, merchant displays and sidewalk sales, local cuisine, and a festive atmosphere. Parking is available downtown, but you can also park and ride from 2 locations, Briarwood Mall and Pioneer High School. And if you get tired of walking, just hop on one of the trolley’s to cruise to your next destination.
