It’s Art Fair Week. The fun kicks off on Monday with the Townie Street Park. Then, Art Fair runs from Thursday to Sunday.

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

The highlight of this week is the Ann Arbor Art Fair. The Art Fair kicks off on Monday night with the Townie Street Party. I am hoping that the predicted storms take a break. Then, Art Fair starts on Thursday and runs through Sunday. Be sure to check out our Art Fair with Kids Guide.

Ann Arbor Art Fair with Kids

After Monday, this week is actually fairly cool for Art Fair week. Still temperatures will be in the low 80s allowing for swimming. Find a new place in our 11 Places to Get Wet this Summer – Ann Arbor Pools, Water Parks, Spray Grounds, and more.

Blueberry Picking and limited Cherry Picking are also good options this week.

It’s also a great week for concerts. The Summer Carillon Concert Series on North Campus continues. Wednesday is Broadway on the Big Screen – Ann Arbor Civic Band. Of course other Summer Concert Series outside Ann Arbor in Chelsea, Dexter, and Saline continue this week…and even provide a reason to escape the Art Fair crowds in Ann Arbor. Note, Sonic Lunch takes a break for Art Fair, but there is live music in several spots during Art Fair.

Ann Arbor Summer Concert SeriesAnn Arbor Library is celebrating Shark Week with Shark Storytime and Craft on Monday and Shark Week 30th Anniversary Party on Tuesday. Another fun Science Event at AADL is Michigan Science Center Presents: Kaboomistry! on Friday.
