Island Art Fair

Summertime finds the Island on the Grand River bustling with vendors and shoppers during our annual ISLAND ART FAIR, always the first Saturday in August. 


This juried show brings artists and crafters from all over the state for this one day event.  Thousands of visitors discover unique and quality creations.


Come join us!  Stroll the Island to the sounds of music, the invitation of food and beverages and the lure of a ride on the riverboat!
