Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

September 2-5
Royal Oak, Michigan
Downtown Streets

175 Artists
Deadline: April 12
If you are looking for a festival held in the heart of an affluent neighborhood that is embraced by its residents (attendance 250,000+), that has a #4 rating for fine art sales (AFSB 2010) and excels at hospitality then apply today!                                                                         Happy buyers at Arts, Beats & Eats
If you remember the excitement surrounding this event in its early years with its wall-to-wall coverage in the media and the citizens of affluent Oakland County flooding in to enjoy the fine art, the elegant restaurants and both the nationally known and homegrown music on the stages then you will want to be part of this renaissance as Arts, Beats & Eats positions itself as THE cultural destination on Labor Day weekend for metro Detroit. -- Whoops! That is what we said last year!

                                                                 You will not be alone at this show

Guess what? It came true! Metro Detroiters were more than ready to embrace this popular event again in its new location. The Sunday attendance was so overwhelming that we had to close the gates to any newcomers twice!
What the artists said:
Congratulations! We don't know how to thank you for pulling it all off so perfectly. (Our only complaint is that it's only once a year). It was the best show we've done in the last ten years! You guys ROCK! - Carl Lundgren
Michael and I would like to personally THANK YOU for AB$E this year...I purposely put a $ sign in ab&e...because thanks to that show...we ended up with our best year ever financially....our gross was stunning - Sara & Michael Stephens
Our promotion is considered among the best of art festivals nationwide. You cannot be in the metropolitan Detroit area on Labor Day weekend without seeing specials about the arts activities on television, hearing artists' interviews on the radio stations and seeing comprehensive feature articles in the press, directed solely to the juried fine arts show.

I will be sorry to miss it.  You and Lisa do a wonderful job, and are as "artist friendly" as can be.  But, since I will never retire, my retirement program is to retire certain months.  September is one of them.  If I ever come out of semi-retirement, this will be the first show I apply to.
