Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Original


Booth WA808

The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair (AASAF) is the original of a collective of four concurrent and contiguous fairs that transform central Ann Arbor into a massive outdoor art gallery each July.  Established in 1960 as part of Ann Arbor’s Summer Sidewalk Sales, the Street Art Fair quickly became a 501(c)3 non-profit  arts organization with a mission of increasing public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts.  Over the ensuing 58 years, and additional art fairs, the Original Fair has continued to focus on the art, the artists and the art buyers.  Known for its consistently high quality, all original work, the Street Art Fair resides on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of the University of Michigan and does not host sidewalk sales or vendor booths.  The Street Art Fair was voted one of the “Top Ten Best Art Festivals” in the country in an USA TODAY Reader’s Poll and is continually in the Art Fair Calendar “Top Ten Best Art Fairs” & Art Fair Source Books “Elite 25”.  In addition, we ranked 4th in the nation in Sunshine Artist’s “Top 100 Fine Art Shows” in 2016.
