2019 Ann Arbor Art Fair – Volunteers Needed!

Summer has arrived in Ann Arbor and we’re already talking about the biggest event of the summer – Art Fair! From Thursday, July 18 to Sunday, July 21, the streets of Ann Arbor will transform into an art lover’s paradise where you can experience and enjoy original works of art, street performances, culinary treats and a variety of sidewalk sales. From seasoned art enthusiasts to novice collectors, thousands will make the trip to discover something truly inspiring.


We are looking for volunteers again this year to help with our tent on William Street (see photo). Shifts range 3-4 hours during the morning, mid-day, or early evening hours each day. We will be selling Michigan Catholics t-shirts, cookbooks, and water bottles, and we will also give out welcome guides and answer simple questions about our vibrant parish. This is a wonderful opportunity to represent our parish and meet new people!

We are also in need of volunteers to help with parking on Sunday, July 21st. Shifts this year are only 30 minutes – volunteers will wear a Michigan Catholics t-shirt and stand at the entrance to the Maynard Street and the university parking structures, welcoming parishioners and handing out free parking vouchers to those who don’t have them. If you’re planning to come to mass on Art Fair Sunday, consider coming 30 minutes early to help with parking! Individuals, couples, and families would all make great parking “greeters.”

If you are planning to attend ANY mass on Sunday, July 21, be sure to pick up a FREE parking voucher from our front office during July. Vouchers not yet available – we will announce when they are available. Parking during Art Fair can be as high as $20 per vehicle. Free Sunday parking is NOT in effect during Art Fair and does NOT apply to any metered or parking structure spaces. The city has mentioned cars will be ticketed and towed this year. Vouchers are valid for the Maynard Street and University parking structures only.

Contact the parish office 734.663.0557 with questions about volunteering and/or parking. Visit www.visitannarbor.org/artfair for more information on the Art Fair.
