Lots To See and Plenty To Do
WELCOME TO THE BELLE ISLE ART FAIR
Visit the Motorcity Mermaids, live at the show. Take your photos with them. Discussing the importance of clean waterways with a mermaid has got to count for extra credit!
The Belle Isle Art Fair celebrates the artists and their creations. One way we do this is by encouraging those coming out to learn about the process and even to try creating art on their own. That's why we partner with area organizations to offer hands on activities. Our artists are also encouraged to demonstrate.
Belle Isle Park has been a feature of the city since 1880. People in the area have fond memories of attending a family reunion, a community celebration or a major event at the Island. Many visit the park throughout the year to enjoy it's beauty and serenity.
The Belle Isle Art Fair is meant to help you bring that beauty back home with you to enjoy. A chance to relax even when you can't take the time to visit the Island. Artwork that sparks memories and promotes a sense of well being.
