Where is Frankfort?  High on a bluff in the heart of Michigan's summer vacation land, the hidden gem of Northern Michigan on Lake Michigan and Betsie Bay.
From the Chamber of Commerce:
This very popular northern Michigan Art Fair has been voted one of the top 100 Art Fairs in Michigan!  This two-day event provides a variety of artists and food.  
Visitors specifically look for their favorite artists year after year.  We do our best to keep them in their same spot, so they know right where to find them!

The fair is in a beautiful park setting with up to 10,000 people in attendance.  It is one of the most popular art fairs in Northern Michigan.
There is also fun for the whole family with all the downtown businesses only 3 blocks away, including a book sale, pancake breakfast, concert in the park, cruise at A&W, pulled pork picnic, among many other activities that day and great local food.  You might even want to fit in some salmon fishing!
What's not to like?
  • two days
  • beautiful time of year for weather & tourism
  • spacious booth spaces:  12x12

I attended this show. Weather was nice and cool, and I dipped my toes into Lake Michigan for the first time. I only wish it had been Sunday as well for such a long drive (14).

A very long drive for you, Joel. That is a beautiful town high on the bluffs over the dunes ... do you think you'll go back next year?

If they were to make it a full two days, I may do it. But for just Friday evening and a short day Saturday, it's not worth it for me.
