It’s official: The Ann Arbor Art Fair is back! The directors of the fair announced that a truncated version of the event would take place from Thursday, July 15 through Saturday, July 17. The Art Fair is traditionally a four day event, but given the late announcement and limited resources, the directors decided that there would not be a show on Sunday this year. Despite the lifting of restrictions on outdoor events, the 2021 edition of the Art Fair will still be held with safety in mind, with additional space between booths, mask wearing encouraged with hand sanitizing stations provided throughout the fair.
