Arbor Annie’s Art Fair Week Picks July 17-21, 2017

The big event in town this week is Ann Arbor Art Fair which starts with the Townie Street Party on Monday. Of course, we have event selections to help you escape Art Fair on some days.

Arbor Annie's Art Fair Week Picks

The weather forecast below is fairly typical for Art Fair with Thunderstorms on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. I’m hoping they hold off Wednesday night so my daughter doesn’t miss another softball game (she had 2 cancelled last week).

Our top pick for the week is the Townie Street Party on Monday night. It is my favorite part of Art Fair. Head to the Ingalls Mall to see the Youth Art Fair vendors. Plus there will be kids activities, food tents, and more.

I asked local parents for their Art Fair Tips in this week’s Ask an Ann Arbor Expert article: Ann Arbor Art Fair with Kids. Check out their advice plus some from me. If you have any tips we missed, add them to the comments and I’ll update the article.

Movies

Now that school is out, the matinees (Free or Discounted) are a great option. Quality 16, Emagine, and Cinemark (Rave) all have movies this week. Quality 16 has Peanuts Monday-Friday. Rave is showing Hotel Transylvania 2 on Tuesday and Saturday. Emagine is showing Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life on Wednesday this week.

Still in theaters this week is Spiderman: Homecoming. We saw it last weekend, so don’t miss our review and parental guidance warnings. We also have reviews including parental guidance of several other shows still in theaters including Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Also in theaters are Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3 which I have yet to see. Maybe my daughter and I will take advantage of matinee pricing to see one of them this week.
