What's New At Shelby Township Art Fair, Slated for Aug. 11 and 12

Shelby's annual Art Fair is coming soon. Here's a peek of some of the fun that's planned. 

Don’t miss an opportunity to check out what’s new and have some outdoor fun at Shelby Township’s 29th Annual Art Fair, August 11 and 12 on the Municial Grounds, located at 52700 Van Dyke Avenue, just south of 24 Mile Road.

The event, sponsored by The Shelby Township Art Fair Committee and the Parks, Recreation and Maintenance Department,  features original works by artists from the area, around the state and across the country, but there’s more to do than just view art.  The committee has been working hard to bring new features to the fair to make the event more fun for all ages.
