Funky Ferndale Art Fair returns to Nine Mile and Woodward Avenue Sept. 15-17 this year. The Funky Ferndale Art Fair is an annual juried show of over 100 artists from across the country with contemporary and “funky” styles.
Selected artwork includes paintings, jewelry, photography, sculptures and more. Work is selected with a focus on the culture of Ferndale. “We are twice as ‘funky’ as the average fine art show,” said event coordinator Mark Loeb in a press release. “We focus on quality art, with a focus on work that is a bit more contemporary and edgy.”
The festival will also include an “Art Scholars” for student artists, acoustic music to compliment the viewing, ransom poetry and a childrens art area. Local Ferndale restaurants will also be present, offering a variety of tastes to festivalgoers.
The Funky Ferndale Art Fair has grown each year, reaching tens of thousands of viewers and putting hundreds of artists in connection with enthusiasts and buyers. The festival runs from 4-9 p.m. Sept 15, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sept. 16 and noon-5 p.m. Sept. 17. For more information, go to
