Since its humble beginning in 1983 the Shelby Township Art Fair has become an annual event that many look forward to visiting.  It has grown to be a favorite for those looking for a great family outing and a wonderful venue to find that special piece for their home or themselves.  The Shelby Township Art Fair Committee invites artists from near and far and Michigan based businesses to exhibit at its 30th Annual Art Fair.

ARTISTS and FINE CRAFTERS that create works in paint, wood, glass, clay, metal, photography, jewelry, fibers, and more are being sought to exhibit. This is a juried fair where buy/sell products are not permitted.

MICHIGAN-BASED BUSINESSES that make items for visitors to purchase and take with them are invited to apply to exhibit and sell their products in the area designated for Michigan Made Products. This was a new feature at the Art Fair in 2012 that was met with very positive feedback from the participating businesses and by the visitors to the fair.

  • Juried fair limited to 100 artists and 30 Michigan based businesses
