Because We Love Our Artists!
The Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Ferrysburg presents the 59th Annual Grand Haven Art Festival, taking place on June 27th & 28th from 10am-5pm. This festival transforms downtown Grand Haven into a chic, outdoor art gallery.
Grand Haven welcomes hundreds of artists from across the United States to display and sell their masterpieces. There several categories in which the artists can display their creative designs. These mediums include clay, photography, paintings, and wood. The Art Festival offers a chance for artists to reveal their artistic creations to the public. You can find many experienced artists throughout the festival, while newer artists can be located at the Emerging Artist tent.
While the artists come to show and sell their work, the artists also participate in an on-site jury process. There are a group of qualified judges whom award cash prizes for the winners of Best in Show, an Excellence Award, Jury’s Choice, and an Honorable Mention in all the specific categories.
As an artist, reserving a spot for the festival is highly competitive, applying months in advance. The art work is then judged by a qualified jury, requiring that the artwork is hand crafted and original, before the artist is able to receive a spot at the festival. The competitive selection process allows for artists of different specialties to be able to attend the festival.
The festival offers the chance for the community to come together and support the one hundred artists and their artwork. Don’t miss out on the chance to buy some one-of-a-kind art work from many talented artists! Oh and don’t forget to grab a bite to eat from all our fantastic food establishments and local food trucks located in the downtown area.
