Elk Rapids is at the center of some of the most affluent real estate in northern Michigan, on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay, near Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. This area has really blossomed with new homes, golf courses and galleries in the last ten years, making it a desired vacation, second home location, for people from Chicago and Detroit.

Held in Veteran’s Memorial Park, by Grand Traverse Bay in the heart of this charming harbor town. Patrons can walk two short blocks where they will find restaurants, antique shops and art galleries. Elk Rapids already attracts an art-loving clientele the year around.

Patterned after the very successful Charlevoix Waterfront Art Fair, the organizers have planned every detail including: The night before, a reception (appetizers and wine) was held for the artists and volunteers. The next morning volunteers were on hand with golf carts at 5 am to unload artists vans and help with setup. Then the sun came out and the people showed up.

How about these testimonials from artists:

“This was a terrific show, well organized, advertised, and well attended. Glad to be in the show.”

“My compliments to all involved. The art presented was upscale. Very well done.”

“Thanks for selecting fine art (as opposed to crafts). It’s very difficult to find art shows, and if you continue to keep a high standard and accept only fine art, you will get that reputation and buyers coming with the knowledge that it is an art show and they are prepared to spend accordingly.”
