|South University. 2017 Ann Arbor Art Fair.|
By Editor & Publisher Jeff Brown.
The Ann Arbor Art Fair is kicking in and to borrow a song title from an appropriate Sly and the Family Stone song, this means one thing, 'Hot Fun In the Summertime'! Four separate Fairs actually make up one big gigantic and enormous Ann Arbor Art Fair. Yep, four! There is the Original Street Art Fair, the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair, the State Street State Art Fair and the South University Art Fair. As the Ann Arbor Area Convention & Visitors Bureau puts it, "Four Fairs. One Event."
As we speak, thousands and thousands of people are converging on Ann Arbor, and with temperatures in 90's, oh boy, it is hot and sticky out there. But who cares! The town is brimming with beautiful art, beautiful people, great food, fantastic deals on clothing, and tons and tons of, well, stuff. But its totally cool stuff, so let it reign! Reign, not rain!
How many vendors take part in the Art Fair? Rumor has it about a thousandish. Holy Mackerel! If the art work is a bit too pricey for you, because, listen, the art can be pricey, then go check out the tent in front of the M-Den on State Street. They are selling authentic Michigan jerseys for $20.00! I bought on myself!
But here is my special advice for hanging out at the Ann Arbor Art Fair...BRING PLENTY OF WATER AND STAY HYDRATED! Oh, and go check out the M-Den on State Street for those awesome Michigan jerseys!
