Clarkston’s 45th annual Art in the Village returns to Clarkston’s Depot Park on Sept. 16-17, featuring more than 80 artists and vendors representing woodworking, glass, pottery, paintings, metalwork, photography, textiles, jewelry, edibles, and more.
Admission and parking are free. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Hosted by the Clarkston Community Historical Society, the family friendly event is the organization’s largest fundraiser. In addition to works from carefully selected artisans, live music and children’s activities will be featured throughout the weekend.
Show proceeds underwrite exhibits at the Clarkston Heritage Museum, the purchase and restoration of historically significant Clarkston artifacts, and free educational programs for the public throughout the year.
The CCHS cider tent returns with the fall flavors of locally sourced, fresh-pressed cider and apple cider doughnuts.
The popular antique tent also returns with donated vintage furniture, glassware, toys, framed art and other items donated by the public – all at bargain prices.
“You never know what you will find and when it’s gone, it’s gone,” said Jonathan Smith, president of Clarkston Community Historical Society. “A Silent Auction tent features items generously donated to the historical society by show artists.”
CCHS also will sell Clarkston merchandise perfect for holiday gifts.
On-street parking and the lot across from the park will be available. CCHS is accepting donations of antiques and collectibles for the antique sale. Donors will receive a tax receipt listing the fair market value of donated items. For more information, please call the Clarkston Heritage Museum at 248-922-0270.
