Here is what artists are saying about last year’s Wyandotte Street Art Fair:
I have heard only really good things about this past fair. Word on the street is that everyone at Wyandotte was up (myself included). Best year we have had at Wyandotte and we are going into the 7th year. Everything went smoothly in our opinion, plenty of set up time and we really appreciate the girls that come around offering water and food. Looking forward to next year!

I want to thank you and your staff for allowing me to be a part of the festival this year. The show has been my best all year. I am sorry we did not get a chance to talk longer however, as you can tell people were standing in my booth waiting to give me their money (Ha Ha). Shows this good are hard to come by these days. Many thanks and have a Blessed year!!!!!!

Wyandotte is the second longest running and second largest art fair in Michigan. It is well established and very well attended. This is one of the ‘biggies’ in Michigan and for many customers their favorite. It is usually held the week before Ann Arbor giving artists who are traveling some distance two events back-to-back. It is also one of those fairs where you hear people say that they don’t go to Ann Arbor, giving you access to a different clientele.
Over 200,000 people from around the metro area and Canada attend. The City really turns out to host the event and take pride in it. If you want exposure to a new group this may be the place. Are you feeling adventurous? Ready to get your feet wet in a strong established art fair? This may be the one for you.
Expenses are low: the booth fee is only $225 for a four day event, less than $60 a day, quite a bargain and housing in the area is reasonable.
More good news:
- pull up to your booth to unload and load
- awards for best of show, best new artist, best booth
- showers for artists, booth sitters, water
- great hospitality to keep you comfortable during the fair
Detroit area art fair audiences are some of the best. For more information and to download an application go to: http://www.wyandottestreetartfair.org/
