Art In The Park set to return to Plymouth next weekend

Next week, a 40 year tradition will return to the downtown streets of Plymouth with Art In The Park, the second largest art fair in the state. This year, the massive art sale will take place beginning Friday, July 9 through Sunday, July 11.

The staple of Plymouth Art in the Park remains the 400 plus artists from around the United States and Canada. Thousands of pieces of original artwork will be available for purchase including; paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, fine glass, woodwork, mixed media, photography, and folk art. Young visitors can participate in the painting of the children's mural and young artists will have booths around Kellogg Park displaying their artwork for sale. There will be musical entertanment and performers all weekend.

Parking for the event is free at Schoolcraft College where a $3 shuttle ride will bring visitors to the center of the festival at Plymouth City Hall. The coaches are air-conditioned and have restrooms on board. 

Due to predicted warm temperatures, visitors are advised not to bring pets as the hot pavement can cause serious injuries to paw pads.
