Adrian, MI – June 4, 2018 – Exciting changes will be featured at the 2018 Artalicious Fine Arts Fair, downtown Adrian’s annual juried fine arts fair, which takes place on Friday, Sept. 21 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Artalicious planning committee has decided to make changes to the fair format that will enhance the experience for both exhibiting artists and fair-goers.
The biggest change those attending Artalicious will see is there will not be a main stage for entertainment. Instead, sprinkled among the artist tents, non-profits booths, and hands-on art project tents, smaller performance spaces will feature talented entertainment. As visitors stroll they will enjoy entertainment, such as: Harpist Caresse Boyers, Guiness Book of World Records setter, Erik the Juggler, acapella singers, barbershop groups, and more. The North Main Street Stage will still feature local groups and acts similar to last year’s fair, which included a poetry slam, high school and college musical groups, story yoga, and comedian to mention a few. This intertwining of art and entertainment is sure to make for an all-around, pleasurable, aesthetic experience.
Another fair addition is a new community partnership between Artalicious and the Adrian Armory Events Center, located half a block west from the West Maumee Street portion of the fair. Artalicious is thrilled to expand it’s fair base to include the Armory, which will host well-known entertainers on Friday at 8:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. These concerts, sponsored by Artalicious, will be free to the public. Friday night’s concert brings back the crowd-pleasing band Los Hermanos Villegas, a Tejano Band, which fuses the musical stylings of folk and popular music originating among Mexican-Americans of South Texas. Saturday’s performance showcases “The Chairman of the Board meets the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll!” This evening, “Elvis” impersonator, Matt King and “Sinatra/Rat Pack” style vocalist, Gary Sacco, recreate the music and style of two American legendary favorites.
“You don’t want to miss out on this outstanding event,” said Don Taylor, chairman of the Artalicious planning committee. “We’ve been working hard to make Artalicious the premier small-town fine arts fair in the region.”
