about the marketplace

The Ann Arbor State Street Hand-Crafted Marketplace takes place adjacent to the award winning Ann Arbor State Street Fine Art Fair in Ann Arbor’s historic theater district. It will offer artists, artisans and craftspersons an opportunity to showcase, build awareness and value for handmade goods as an alternative to mass-produced items.

For more than 50 years, this fair and three others, collectively known as the Ann Arbor Art Fair, have attracted over 400,000 fair goers to the streets of Ann Arbor, Michigan for one of the most admired and largest arts and craft fair destinations in the country.


The State Street District works jointly with the other three art fairs to market the Ann Arbor Art Fair (as it is known to/recognized by the public). The power of the collective gives a large amount of area marketing for the event. Marketing pieces include:

  • The Ann Arbor Art Fair Official Event Guide

  • Feature opportunities on the State Street District Social Media platforms

  • Listing on the website
