WYANDOTTE — The 56th annual Wyandotte Street Art Fair, one of the largest and best attended fairs in the state, is set to take place July 12 to 15 along Biddle Avenue between Eureka and Oak streets in downtown Wyandotte.
The fair – traditionally held on the second week of July each year – will feature over 300 artists, entertainers, food vendors, local businesses and exhibitors.
Artists will display their works at their own special numbered booths each day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The art displayed at the fair will include: pottery, paintings, jewelry and photography.
Entertainment will run by the Riverfront, on Elm Street and Biddle Avenue, each day from 1 to 11 p.m. A variety of bands and musicians will be featured.
The Wyandotte Street Art Fair serves as a homecoming for many natives of the city, Special Events Coordinator Heather Thiede said.
“We have had a lot of high school class reunions that participate in the art fair, because a lot of people do make it a point in their yearly schedules to come back to Wyandotte for the fair,” Thiede said.
Downriver Community Conference will provide shuttle service to the fair from Roosevelt High School from 2 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
