As one of the most successful juried art fairs in Southeastern Michigan, 2019 marks the 49th anniversary of the Royal Oak Outdoor Art Fair. Our fair is brought to you in conjunction with the City of Royal Oak Recreation Department and a group of hard working community volunteers, ready to assist as necessary. The longstanding tradition of quality artwork, a tree-lined park setting, daily light entertainment and delicious food, makes this Annual Fair a staple in the arts community.
The Royal Oak Arts Council is sponsoring an art contest to open to all student artists of any age who attend classes in Royal Oak. The winning artist will receive $250.00 and their entry will be used as the featured art on our promotional posters, online media and printed programs for the 2020 fair.
Our artists number over 100 local, regional and nationally known individuals specializing in all mediums of fine art. Juried in under many categories, artists specialize in Ceramics; Collage; Drawing; Jewelry; Wood; Fiber; Metals; Painting – including Acrylics, Oil, Watercolor; Pastels; Photography; Sculpture & more. At the fair you will find home accents for indoors and out to enjoy while at the fair and to take home and call your own.
And for your entertainment, the art fair prides itself in having some of the finest local performers including vocal and instrumental groups playing for attendees multiple times each day of the fair. Many of our visitors come to shop the art, then pull up a chair to enjoy the music and the beautiful park setting – relaxing on a fine summer’s day.
Proceeds from the art fair provide scholarships for local youth, grants for local art-related organizations (see pARTners) as well as support for Youth programs offered through the Royal Oak Recreation Department.
We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate our 50th Annual Royal Oak Outdoor Art Fair – bigger and better than ever!
