The State Street Area Art Fair is a nationally recognized and award winning art fair that combines the talents of 325 artists with a host of merchant displays along the vibrant streets of Ann Arbor's campus area. It is one of four Ann Arbor fairs held concurrently each July.

Since the first Fair appeared on South University in 1960 many things have changed and yet so much remains the same. The idea for an Art Fair, first proposed by Bruce Henry, owner of Artisan’s Gallery on South University, now has a life of its own, drawing over 500,000 enthusiastic patrons every year. One hundred and eighty five nationally renowned artists participate on the streets of the South U area, each July.

Fairgoers can also enjoy lively street corner entertainment, artists’ demonstrations, children’s activities and the distinctive shops and restaurants of Ann Arbor. The convenient Art Fair Shuttle with two park and ride locations brings you into the heart of the fair.
