  • ART MEDIA - Original, hand-made, one of a kind pieces (with the exception of prints), created and produced by the artist 
  • EMERGING ARTISTS - Artists just starting to exhibit in any of the ART mediums that don't have enough work for a full booth. Each accepted artist may rent no more than one 6 foot table under the Emerging Artists Tent.
  • CRAFT MEDIA - Items created by the crafter and produced in small quantities 
  • MICHIGAN MADE MARKET - Items created in batches by Michigan based businesses 
What they say about us:
"To the entire crew... You always do a class act job of tending to and serving the artists! High five to all of you!"
"We were vendors at your show and want to thank you for getting together such a good show. We had good sales and really enjoyed the entertainment. We plan to see you again next year!"
