A number of communities will host local summer Art Fairs, but one of the biggest is the upcoming Ann Arbor Street Art Fair. It takes place July 21-23, 2022.

Summer is often a time for community art fairs.  It offers local artists an opportunity to display some of their work, a chance to support them, and purchase unique items.

One of the largest juried art fairs in the nation is located in southern Michigan.

The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair will draw close to a half million people.  They will feature nearly 1,000 artists and performers during July 21-23, 2022. There is parking information and maps of the event on their website.  Their mission is to increase the public's knowledge and appreciation for fine arts and crafts.
