Michaywé Arts & Crafts Fair

Early Aug - Michaywe Clubhouse

The Michaywé Art and Crafts Fair is celebrating its 40th anniversary in August with more than 100 artists and exhibitors, special “Kids Zone” children’s activities, and a fun raffle to benefit a local charity. This premier northern-Michigan fair will be held outdoors and indoors — both beneath the trees around the pond, and in event halls within the beautiful community clubhouse overlooking the lake — on Friday and Saturday, August 10 and 11, in the at the park-like Michaywé community in Gaylord. An army of smiling community volunteers will also be on hand to make sure the anticipated 2,500-plus visitors get a good dose of up-north Michigan hospitality.

Visitors to the 40th annual Michaywé Art and Crafts Fair will find unique items for every budget. That includes contemporary and traditional styles, indoor and outdoor décor, original fine artwork, unique clothes and accessories, inspired nature photography, creative natural products, a wide range of one-of-a-kind jewelry, and just about everything in between. Additional booths will feature flavor-packed jams, jellies and other canned items, a large selection of delectable sausages, tasty baked goods, and kettle corn, among other tantalizing treats.

“Words just cannot describe everything at the fair, so we put together a website at www.MichayweArtFair.com to help visitors see samples of the work of our dedicated and talented artists and crafters, and put together a shopping list so they don’t miss anything,” says fair co-chair Tim O’Connor. To make the website even more visitor-friendly, it also provides a video view of the fair.
The 40th Annual Michaywé Art & Crafts Fair will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 10; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug 11. “Kids’ Zone” activities are scheduled from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. both days, and include hands-on nature presentations by Hartwick Pines State Park naturalist Craig Kasmer on Friday, and a build-your-own project by Home Depot.
