On August 11, 2018 many of the nation's finest artists and craftsmen will be coming to the Charlevoix Waterfront Art Fair to exhibit their best works. These have been chosen from over 1000 applicants who subject their work to the jury. This is a most difficult task as this fair attracts the finest but only a limited number of spaces are available.
The Fair is always held the second Saturday in August and draws over 25,000 art lovers to this resort town between Lake Michigan and Round Lake. It is the second oldest juried art fair in Michigan.
Considered one of the most visually exciting art fairs in the country, the Charlevoix Waterfront Art Fair, now in its 60th year, has a reputation with critics and collectors because of both the quality of the work and the unparalleled location. The focus of the fair to bring fine arts and crafts to northern Michigan hasn't changed since a group of Charlevoix residents coined it and began the fair in 1958.
