Belle Isle Art Fair

We bring two groups of Mint Artists to Belle Isle Art Fair – the Learn and Earn artists who show and sell their work and those in our Creative Summer Jobs program, who help the organizer with tasks such as arts and crafts or bringing artists snacks or breaks.

This fair is held near Scott Fountain, and it features more than 100 artists from 20 states.

Hours are Saturday, Aug. 3, 10-7, and Sunday, Aug. 4 from 11-5 (though it sometimes stays open until 6 if there are crowds)

A beautiful fair on Belle Isle; save the date

Summertime seems better and more beautiful with a trip to Belle Isle. And Belle Isle State Park on a weekend with 100 artists, plus food trucks, tropical drinks and more, sounds like a slice of heaven.

So mark your calendar for Aug. 3 and 4 for the Belle Isle Art Fair, produced by our long-time supporter Integrity Shows. (Mark Loeb, Integrity’s president and founder, is also a co-founder of Mint Artists Guild.)

Mint Artists Guild will be there three times over.

  • Our Learn and Earn artists will show and sell beautiful work: paintings, photographs, jewelry and more.
  • Our Creative Summer Jobs team will lead an arts and crafts project related to gardens.
  • Mint will debut a new greeting card that weekend and will sell cards and prints to support our programs.

So if you cannot face the crowds and hot pavement of Ann Arbor or Wyandotte, come savor a slice of heaven.

Save the date. Mark your calendars. Plan a day with family or friends on Aug. 3 or 4. See you on Belle Isle!
