ART IN THE PARK-VILLAGE CRAFT MARKET-MICHIGAN MARKETPLACE
Open to the public with a FREE admission, ART IN THE PARK will feature over 160-juried artisans showcasing their unique talents. VILLAGE CRAFT MARKET will again provide patrons the relaxing stroll of the streets of historic downtown Muskegon for that special hand crafted item! Over 180 exhibitors will join us with their original handcrafted wares. The MICHIGAN MARKETPLACE & BISTRO will provide patrons a wide variety of packaged food items found in our great state of Michigan. Relax at the Bistro where you can sample unique beers and Michigan wines. It is a great spot to pause and take in the moment! While you stroll, you may be engaged by LIVELY STREET PERFORMANCES; happen upon an ART ACTIVITY ZONE [Spend time creating your own works of art in the Art Activity Zone]; or experience an ARTIST DEMONSTRATION [Watch and learn the special techniques of our artists as they demonstrate what makes their artwork unique].
Once again, “Art in the Park”, “Village Craft Market”, and the “Michigan Marketplace” combine to further our objective to increase public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts by creating opportunities that connect artists, the western Michigan Great Lakes and Muskegon community along with the general public, to their mutual benefit, culminating in a top quality jury selection street art fair.
