THE 2019 ARTS & ACTS WAS THE LARGEST IN ITS 10-YEAR HISTORY

The 2019 Arts and Acts Festival was largest in its 10-year history when it returned to historic downtown Northville on June 21, 22, and 23. This year’s festival featured more than 150 local and national artists and vendors over the weekend of arts, crafts, theatre, literature, music, food and more. With many restaurants, shops, and landmarks along the festival path, visitors also found an abundance of neighborhood venues to check out in between viewing the vast display of arts.

“We had an incredible response by artists and the community to the festivals return to downtown Northville. This year was bigger and more diverse than past years, with more than 50 returning exhibitors artists and 100 new artists and vendors. We attract upwards of 25,000 visitors over the weekend,” enthusiastically expounds Alexandra Teicher, the festival’s coordinator.
