Funky Ferndale Art Fair
Fashionable Ferndale’s downtown is a thriving business community with distinctive boutiques and bistros. The lively atmosphere attracts young upwardly mobile professionals. This show is designed to provide a showcase for artists that have work that appeals to that group. By producing an event appropriate for a community, we are able to attract large crowds that have a direct interest in the works being presented. Our goal is not attracting a massive crowd of random bodies.
We work to bring 20,000 people with the means and ability to buy your art. Our shows are widely praised for the effort placed toward supporting participating artists. We understand that your success is essential to our success.
Artist booths are positioned along Nine Mile Road, west of Woodward Avenue in the shopping district. Restaurants and music are kept to the end to minimize distraction. There is a limit of 120 booths with an emphasis on variety of media. We prefer artists to apply on Zapplication. If you are unable to do so, please contact us for a paper application.
25 Sep - 27 Sep
