Suttons Bay Art Festival
Each year the first weekend of August finds thousands of art lovers flocking to the Suttons Bay Marina Park to shop for fine arts and crafts. This unique region is a popular resort area drawing people from all over the country. There are an abundance of retirement and second homes as well as an eclectic year round population.
Suttons Bay is in an area of the country where an enthusiastic and sophisticated appreciation for the arts is the norm. The quality of our exhibitors and extensive regional marketing makes our show a destination for both visitors and residents. The fair is set in our Marina Park area next to our beautiful Lake Michigan beach. The stunning location makes the event a fun and profitable artist-friendly event.
A group of seasoned jurors select the exhibiting artists. A committee of volunteers oversees the distribution of funds generated by the event. Thousands of dollars are contributed each year to local arts-related education projects, including music and dance performances, artist-in-residence programs and scholarships for local art students.
Our show offers approximately 100 artists along with community groups, food vendors, the annual library book sale, and a children’s art area, making this a perfect place to spend an art-filled weekend at the beach.
