Artist Application


Artists–Join the Excitement and Success that is Art in the Sun!

Art in the Sun, in its 29th year in 2017, draws close to 20,000 visitors during the three-day weekend. Join the many artists who return each year to have a successful experience in southeast Michigan. Art in the Sun has the reputation of being one of the “nicest” art fairs in the midwest, as we take pride in taking care of our artists. From water deliveries to booth sitters to a free “Artists Brunch” on the last day, Art in the Sun is a great place to sell your work.

The overall Arts and Acts celebration includes the Art in the Sun Juried Fine Arts Festival, the Sandbox Play Festival by the Tipping Point Theater, the Short on Words literature contest by Preservation Dental, music from top Detroit-area acts throughout the weekend, the 5th annual Northville Art House Chalk Festival, a variety of gourmet Food Trucks, and children’s activities.

Applications are now CLOSED for 2017. Please check back in January for 2018 opportunities
