Art Fair Insiders

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

August 29-September 1

Royal Oak, Michigan 
Downtown Streets
145 Artists
Deadline: March 31

Now in its fifth year in downtown Royal Oak, Ford Arts, Beats & Eats is carrying on a 17 year tradition of celebrating the end of summer in Metro Detroit on Labor Day weekend.    


We play host to over 400,000 visitors who come to enjoy the amazing diversity of art, music and food in a cool urban setting.  Arts, Beats & Eats is held in Oakland County, the third-wealthiest county in the nation, containing cities such as Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills and Rochester.


The 145 artists chosen to participate come from across the country to join our celebration. Being an art fair artist is a demanding business.  A professional staff awaits your arrival and we look forward to welcoming you with perks such as:

People love our festival
  • vigorous friendly volunteers
  • drive to your booth for set up and take down  
  • cash awards
  • free food tickets   
  • personal attention to particular  needs. Tell us what you need, we're here to serve.
  • discounted hotel rooms
  • reserved parking

Our promotion, guaranteed by generous media sponsor support, is considered among the best of art festivals nationwide.  You cannot be in the metropolitan Detroit area on Labor Day weekend without seeing programs 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.   
Why the patrons like our show:  
"There is just so much to do and see. Great artists everywhere! "
"Diversity of work with surprises around every corner. I never miss this one."

Our many thanks to the fine artists who have helped keep this vibrant festival going. We know it is a big one with lots of challenges but nowhere else in the country will you be exposed to such a diverse audience of people who love our festival.


We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in 2014!
