Art & About 2018!

First event: May, 11th

The Berkley Downtown Development Authority is excited to kick off its second year of the Art & About summer series! Beginning May 11th, from 5pm-9pm, Art & About will run every second Friday through September. Downtown businesses will open their doors to Metro Detroit artists and performers, showcasing their many talents. Wherever you stroll, there will be more music, artists, and food trucks!

Pop-Up artists and musicians, located in pockets around the Downtown District, will engulf Berkley in creativity. Visitors and residents will have a chance to engage with artists as they play, display and sell their work.

Hop on the trolley between Coolidge/Catalpa and 12 Mile/Tyler to view the event from every angle. Enjoy delicious food and beverages while drinking in Berkley’s eclectic atmosphere. Shop all of the merchants’ specials along the way.

This free event will highlight the beauty of Berkley. Join us every second Friday to embrace the interactive experiences of local art at the community’s fingertips.
