By Editor & Publisher Jeff Brown.
According to a Thursday, May 7 press release from the Ann Arbor Art Fair organization, the 2020 Ann Arbor Art Fair has been canceled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. This would have been the 61st annual Ann Arbor Art Fair.
According to a statement from the organization, "It is with heavy hearts that the Directors of the four
individual Ann Arbor Art Fairs come together to announce the decision to cancel the 2020 Ann
Arbor Art Fair. This was an extremely difficult decision, as we know how deeply this impacts the
participating artists, local businesses and the broader Ann Arbor community. However, the
Covid-19 virus has changed the world as we know it and the safety of our visitors, artists, and
area residents is the top priority. We are deeply saddened, but we have consulted with City
officials and determined that we are just not able to produce the Art Fair in a manner that will
adhere to the mandated social distancing requirements that lie ahead."
