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 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! jury fee $15

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!

Please note the Jewelry category is full.

"What's not to like?"  You extended the deadline by a month and are STILL charging a 25 late application fee...NUTS.  At least it is noted that the jewelry category is already full.  Please note that thankfully this show is in Frankfort MI not Frankfort KY.
