Event Summary
BELLE ISLE ART FAIR

Belle Isle is a beautiful island park reached by bridge from Detroit.  The park was designed by Frederick Olmsted, the same designer as Central Park in New York. The art fair is in a grass field adjacent to the beautiful Scott Fountain.

On summer weekends tens of thousands of people come to the park.  We also place extensive print and broadcast advertising to bring in art buyers.

Integrity Shows avoids the everything for everybody concept of shows. Our marketing is designed to bring people with the means and ability to buy your artwork. Our shows are widely praised for the effort placed toward supporting participating artists. We understand that your success is essential and we do what it takes to meet your needs.

We are committed to your success. Please feel free to call with questions or concerns at any time. We are artist focused and seek to provide a venue that enhances your work and simplifies your participation.


General Information

If you elect to re-classify your booth, the difference between your initial rent payment and the adjusted commercial rent will be immediately due and payable.
