Northville’s annual “Arts and Acts Festival” is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Northville Art House.  It is one of the biggest and definitely one of the most diverse summer festivals in metro Detroit. With the exception of the tickets for the Film, Play and Chalk Festivals which are a nominal fee, Arts and Acts is free.  The Art House makes its money through sponsorships and artist booth fees.  Yet a well-attended event is key to our mission:  not only are we bringing the arts to more people, we are encouraging the growth of the Festival, and thus the Art House, in the future.
