The Royal Oak Outdoor Art Fair is set among the beautiful trees and rolling hills of Royal Oak’s Memorial Park. The Outdoor Art Fair is a unique blend of fine arts and quality workmanship. The Art Fair is jointly sponsored by the Royal Oak Arts Council and the City of Royal Oak Recreation Department. The fair is held in the early part of July and attracts artists and artisans from across the USA and Canada. This prestigious fair is ranked among the top juried art fairs in the United States.
We feature local artists as the Artist of the Month in a large showcase in the lobby of the Royal Oak Public Library, as well as, on this website. Another artist, on occasion, may be featured simultaneously in an exhibit in the library auditorium.
