About the Fair

The Ann Arbor State Street Art Fair is one of the four nationally recognized and award-winning art fairs, collectively known as the Ann Arbor Art Fair. For 4 days in July, downtown Ann Arbor is transformed into the nation’s largest juried art fair with over 400,000 attendees.

For over 50 years, the Fair has been the District's premier event.  With the addition of the Emerging Artist section, the Fair is looking forward to reinventing its next 50 years and continuing to provide the Midwest with the best art event.

Fine Arts, Fine Crafts

The standards set for acceptance reflect in the artists' dedication to excellence and quality. A jury of both practicing artists and other arts professionals has the task of screening prospective exhibitors, always looking for fresh and innovative approaches as well as stunning examples of age-old techniques.
