ART on the GRAND is a juried fine arts and crafts show located in downtown Farmington June 6 & 7, 2020. Due to its amazing popularity, this will be our eleventh annual event along Grand River Avenue! Grand River Avenue is a highly-traveled thoroughfare in the charming and historic downtown section of Farmington, MI. Several blocks of Grand River Avenue are closed as ART takes center stage. Farmington is neighbored by the larger city of Farmington Hills, located in Oakland County, Michigan, ranked in the top 25 wealthiest counties (with populations of 65,000 or greater) in the United States.
The City of Farmington Hills is one of the few municipalities in the state of Michigan with a dedicated Cultural Arts Division, funded in-part by its residents through a special millage. The arts are enthusiastically supported by residents, business owners and elected officials of Farmington and Farmington Hills, and both cities work together to present this stand-alone art show.
This is a very ARTS focused fair - meaning our artists take center stage! Other events arranged around ART on the GRAND offer activities for kids, demonstrations, food and more! The show has consistently won rave reviews from the community, attendees and participating artists. Let us show you our hospitality - we love ART!!!
