Established in 1960, the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is the Original of the now four award-winning Ann Arbor Art Fairs:
The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Original
The State Street Area Art Fair
The Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair
Ann Arbor’s South University Art Fair
Together, the fairs attract over 500,000 attendees from across the nation. The Original Fair was named the Number One Art Fair in the country by AmericanStyle magazine readers survey (October 2004) and has made the Top Ten Fairs and Festivals list every year since.
Our mission is to increase public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts by creating opportunities that connect artists, the Ann Arbor community and the general public to their mutual benefit, culminating in a top quality juried street art fair.
The Street Art Fair is set on North University Avenue and on the University of Michigan’s Central Campus, amidst elegant architecture and beautifully landscaped pedestrian walkways, including the landmark Burton Carillon Tower.
THE FOUNTAIN STAGE
The Fountain Stage features 30 acts throughout the four days of the Fair, July 21st -24th, creating an intimate and inviting sense of community, complementing the exceptional visual art at the Original Fair. The stage is located on Ingalls Mall, between Washington Street and North University, next to the fountain.
