Join us to kick off summer in Kalamazoo's Bronson Park. Nearly 190 jury-selected artists from across the country will offer beautiful artwork throughout the city's green, shady "central park." You'll find jewelry, photography, sculpture, painting, ceramics, glass, fiber, leather, and wood, along with music, food trucks, and family activities to make a great, art-filled weekend.
Help the fair be a success by volunteering! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
New this year, we are collaborating with Loaves and Fishes to help feed the community. The cans from a spring food drive will be used to create a sculpture on the Rotary Stage during the fair by Patrick Hershberger, aka Bonus Saves. He'll use cans of all sizes and colors to create a sculpture as fairgoers watch his art-making in action Friday & Saturday, June 7-8.
The Loaves & Fishes warehouse supplies 30 Southwest Michigan food banks! Donors may also contribute money to purchase cans via kzoolf.org to help purchase cans.
