A whole series of fairs held July 20-23, 2011, the Ann Arbor art fairs create one of the biggest and best outdoor art events in the Midwest. “Ann Arbor’s gigantic art festival actually is 4 separate fairs that draw more than 1,000 artists and nearly half a million visitors over 4 days…Along with the fairs are free concerts and a huge variety of food and drink vendors”. A town full of art, a festival of art! Plan to make the trip.
