Royal Oak, Michigan
on the downtown streets
All metro Detroit is excited about the reinvigorated Arts, Beats & Eats at its new location in the hip downtown of Royal Oak. Its rich combination of the best in art, music and food has us all eager to make the trek. A sterling example of "something for everyone", celebrate the end of the summer here!
This popular metro Detroit event moves this year to a new site in downtown Royal Oak. You have got to be there to enjoy this last celebration of summer. This is not an overwhelming art fair that will exhaust you but a select group or artists, both local and national, chosen from over 500 applicants. More than fifty of them have never participated in this art fair, so you can expect many new faces as well as your favorites.
Who'll you find:
This year's Ford Arts, Beats & Eats is providing arts and cultural organizations with expanded opportunities throughout the festival to
showcase their unique programs in the community and their arts advocacy.
You will find performances by:
- Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings
- Royal Oak Symphony
- Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit
- Matrix Theatre Company
- Nadanta Dancers and more
Many stages focusing on local talent as well as national acts like
Macy Gray, WAR, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Clint Black
and my own personal favorite the fabulous
on Friday night!
53 Restaurants will be showcasing and offering great food and tastes throughout the weekend- including
Vince & Joe's Gourmet Market
. An array of food will be presented with no food item costing more than $5.
This is a serious "destination" event. Will I see you there?
