The Northville Art House shines a spotlight on the imagination, art, talent and cultural diversity of artists throughout the region when the annual Arts and Acts Festival returns for the sixth consecutive year June 16-18 in historic downtown Northville. The Festival includes the 29th annual juried fine art show Art in the Sun, featuring over 70 talented artists;  the Sandbox Play Festival produced by Tipping Point Theatre; theShort on Words Literary Contest; musical entertainment featuring some of metro Detroit’s top musicians; Children’s Activities; the Northville Art House Chalk Festival; our new Young Artist Juried Art Fair; and a large variety of festival food and drink.

Northville’s annual “Arts and Acts Festival” is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Northville Art House.  It is one of the biggest and definitely one of the most diverse summer festivals in metro Detroit. With the exception of the tickets for the Play and Chalk Festivals which are a nominal fee, Arts and Acts is free.  The Art House makes its money through sponsorships and artist booth fees.  Yet a well-attended event is key to our mission:  not only are we bringing the arts to more people, we are encouraging the growth of the Festival, and thus the Art House, in the future.
