This annual art fair takes place at the beautiful Suttons Bay Marina Park on the first weekend of August (August 3 & 4th, 2019, Sat. 10am – 6pm, Sun. 10am – 5pm). One hundred artists along with community groups, a community library book sale, food vendors and a children’s area make this the perfect place to spend an art-filled weekend at the beach. Join us on Sunday morning for a pancake breakfast in the park (free to exhibiting artists). This is the second year Blackbird Arts has hosted the breakfast.
A committee of volunteers oversees the selection of visiting artists and the distribution of funds generated by the event. Thousands of dollars have been contributed to local arts-related education projects. These include music and dance performances, artist in residence programs and scholarships for local art students.
Come to Suttons Bay in August, participate – as an artist, as a shopper or as a volunteer. Join in the fun!

The Suttons Bay Art Festival committee, with great disappointment to ourselves, the artists and attendees, has decided to postpone the 41st annual Suttons Bay Art Festival to August 7th and 8th, 2021.
The committee was making plans and arrangements up until now; however, it was concluded that we couldn't have the event and assure that it would be the joyful and stress free experience for the artists and attendees as it has been for the past 40 years.
With artists and attendees, some participants coming from distant locations, the ability to logistically have the flawless experience for all involved as in the past was beyond our control. ... See MoreSee Less
We've been keeping a close eye on Michigan.
This is the right call.
THANK YOU for making it now.
We are in complete support.
Keeping your beautiful little community safe now will go a long way to insure that 2021 will happen.❤️❤️
It is inevitable this year. Thanks for making this decision early on. Let’s all stay well and aim for a reunion in 2021.
I'm sure this is a very difficult decision. Looking forward to next year.
Thanks for keeping our health first in mind. I hope to be back in 2021.
thanx for keeping everyone safe! respect and support your decision and will be there for sure in 2021!!
The right call. Charlevoix Waterfront, the following weekend, canceled last week.
A difficult decision, I’m sure, but the right one.
Well as you might imagine the Suttons Bay Art Festival also had to cancel the Eliza Gilkyson concert at the Bay Theater on May 7th. We are disappointed that our first year concert series will not happen this year. Thank you all for your interest and stay safe. ... See MoreSee Less
