Suttons Bay Art Festival

The annual Suttons Bay Art Festival takes place every year at Marina Park in Suttons Bay on the first weekend of August (August 6-7, 2016). One hundred artists along with community groups, food vendors and a children’s area are on hand from 10-6 Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. There’s also a Sunday mornin a pancake breakfast in the park (free to exhibiting artists).

A committee of volunteers oversees the selection of visiting artists and the distribution of funds generated by the event. Thousands of dollars have been contributed to local arts-related education projects. These include music and dance performances, artist in residence programs and scholarships for local art students.
