Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz festival
This September festival offers an impressive schedule of musicians. There are
many food vendors and a tent with activities and entertainment for kids. Outdoor
concerts held in Gallup Park; indoor concerts held in the Michigan Theater and
Bird of Paradise. For ticket information, call (248) 645-6666.
North American International Auto Show
One of the biggest auto shows in the country is held in the COBO Convention
Center in Detroit every January. Public showing is restricted to 2/3 days
(usually including a weekend). Weekends are usually extremely crowded. You
should be prepared to spend a lot of time searching for parking spaces and
buying tickets. But it is a real treat for people interested in cars.
Ann Arbor Film Festival
This annual event, usually held in March, is one of the oldest and most
prestigious 16-millimeter film festival in North America. It consists of six
nights of the newest experimental, avant-garde and independent short films
(screened in the Michigan Theater). Winning films are screened on Sunday
Ann Arbor Summer Festival
Usually held in June and July, the festival consists of two sets of events.
Charged events at the “U-M Power Center” feature three weeks of concerts by pop,
country and jazz artists. The events sometimes include gymnastic troupes,
symphony orchestras or plays. The “Top of the Park” events are held on the roof
of the Fletcher Street parking structure. These offer free music and movies
(projected on the wall of the parking lot). With food stalls and all, this has
become a unique ritual for many Ann Arbor families.
Ann Arbor Art Fairs
Ann Arbor’s gigantic annual art festival actually consists of four separate
fairs. Together they occupy the majority of downtown, drawing more than 1,000
artists and close to half a million visitors to downtown and the campus area
over four days (Wednesday through Saturday). Free concerts are in abundance, and
a huge variety of food and drink vendors are on hand. The fairs begin on the
third Wednesday of July.
