Call for Artists: 35th Annual Frankfort Art Fair

August 19 & 20
Frankfort, Michigan
Friday 4 pm-8:00 pm, Saturday 10am-5pm
Market Square Park
Coordinated by the Frankfort-Elberta Chamber of Commerce
180+ Artists
Deadline: July 1


Where is Frankfort? High on a bluff in the heart of Michigan's summer vacationland, the hidden gem of Northern Michigan on Lake Michigan and Betsie Bay.

From the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce:

This very popular northern Michigan Art Fair has been voted one of the top 10 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.  The Chamber also hosts a few other fundraisers that day to help with the cost of putting on a fantastic event like this! 

What's not to like? 

  • two days
  • beautiful time of year for weather
  • spacious booth spaces: 12 x 12
  • great booth fee: $105 - for both days!

There is also fun for the whole family with all of the downtown businesses as well as a collector car show 3 blocks away, among many other activities that day and great local food.  You might even want to fit in some salmon fishing!

Here is a report from Nancy Grimsley who participated in last year's show:

I LOVE Frankfort MI. If I had not been accepted into the Michigan City Art Show that weekend, I would apply to this show in a heartbeat-just because that is such a lovely place to be.

You just can't beat anyplace on M22! I got turned down by Frankfort, but they recommended several other art events they host during the summer, so maybe I can work my way up! I'm lucky to have a family vacation spot just 10 miles down the road in Arcadia, another lovely spot.
