On Saturday, August 2, and Sunday, August 3, the 37th Annual Park Avenue Summer Art Festival will fill the Park Avenue neighborhood with arts, crafts, and music. The event, hosted by the Park Avenue Merchants Association, will feature hundreds of local artists, as well as vendors from across the U.S. and Canada. These artisans will sell pieces created in a variety of mediums including pottery, painting, and photographs, and may well be seen creating new works at their booths during the festival. More than 60 musical groups will perform at multiple stages in the area, and local vendors will offer a variety of food for purchase.
The Park Avenue Summer Art Festival will take place Saturday, August 2, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, August 3, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The event is free and runs along Park Avenue, from Alexander Street to Culver Road. During the festival, this portion of Park Avenue will be closed, but parking can be found on adjacent side streets and at Monroe Square (Monroe Avenue) and Gleason Works (1000 University Avenue), with shuttles providing transportation from the lots to the festival for $1.
