The Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce will host the 32nd Annual Brighton Fine Art & Acoustic Music Festival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 31 - August 2, in downtown Brighton.  One of the most prestigious juried art festivals in southeast Michigan, this event draws many national award winners. Last year's talented artist list included a Michigan native whose work has been featured at one of the most nationally recognized art competitions in the world, Grand Rapid's very own ArtPrize. Over 30,000 art enthusiasts will visit our festival to enjoy event activities, savor local restaurant fare and listen to a gentle mix of live acoustic music on four separate Main Street stages.  Art, music and atmosphere will join to create a perfect three-part harmony. Unique art-infused activities will provide the perfect opportunity for hands-on fun and creativity for all ages, and visitors will speak one-on-one with artisans about their original works in glass, watercolor, oils, sculpture, photography, pottery, jewelry, woodcarvings and more.

The Brighton Fine Art event committee is again proud to support the many talented local artists in our community. These artists will gather together on a sunny afternoon in July for the 2nd Annual Plein Air Paint Out, presented by the Brighton Art Guild. Their original works of art will be on display in downtown Brighton prior to Fine Arts, and once again in "The Grape", a Wine and Hops Outdoor Art Gallery located on Main Street throughout the event. Visitors will be given the opportunity to vote for a best in show award and most paintings will be available for purchase. Hours for "The Grape" will be FRIDAY 5:00PM - 9:00PM and SATURDAY 3:00PM - 9:00PM. Tickets for the beverage garden located inside "The Grape" can be purchased at the gallery entrance during event hours. More details about this unique experience will be posted as they become available!

The City of Brighton has truly become a center for the arts in Livingston County - featuring a Sculpture Garden, Art Gallery Walks and plenty of hands-on art opportunities throughout downtown. Once a year the Chamber compliments these established features with the Brighton Fine Arts & Acoustic Music Festival, an event that attracts visitors from all across the state of Michigan. Visitors not only enjoy a hip art festival, but are also free to explore our dynamic and artsy downtown!
