CALLING ALL ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, AND MAKERS! We are now accepting applications for the August 2019 Downtown Berkley Art & About!

About Art & About

Art & About is an Evening Arts and Performance Market spread along 12 Mile Road and Coolidge Highway in Downtown Berkley. It will take place from 4 pm to 9 pm on Friday, August 2nd. Artists, makers, and performers will be hosted throughout the downtown district, both by businesses as well as in other gathering spaces.

You will need to supply your own 10' x 10' tent and provide your own displays, supplies, sandbags/weights and manpower to set up and take down the booth. Please be sure to bring sandbags or filled water jugs to keep it secure in changing Midwestern weather.

Entry Fee: $25.00 (Non-refundable) You are required to show up at the event, regardless of the weather, unless the DDA cancels it. Notice of cancellation will be made a minimum of four hours before the official start of the event.

Participants are welcome to set up a booth earlier in the day if they so choose. Required hours for the event are from 4 pm - 9 pm.
