The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Fair is the second longest-running arts fair in the country. And, it is happening in Kalamazoo’s Bronson Park. Over 100 fine artists travel from across Michigan and the country for the two-day unique shopping experience, bringing works in jewelry, photography, sculpture, painting, ceramics, glass, fiber, leather, wood, and more.

Visitors can enjoy shopping, music, a beer garden, food trucks, and family activities all weekend long. Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Fair is fun for the whole family and open to everyone without registration. As a special treat, the KIA galleries will be open for FREE admission on Friday and Saturday. Explore the following pages to find a Bronson Park map, artist list, and more as you prepare for this once-a-year extravaganza.
