ART FAIR CONCESSIONAIRES

Welcome to the 57th annual Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff happening on July 14th-15th.

With an estimated 50,000 attendees, the Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff is one of the most prestigious and well-attended events in Southwest Michigan.  As a source of pride for the community-as well as volunteers and artists from around the country-the Krasl Art Fair provides our guests with tremendous exposure to high quality art.  The art fair is consistently ranked as one of the top art fairs in the country and has been in the top 20 art fairs in Sunshine Artist Magazine for 5 years running.

St. Joseph is located next to Benton Harbor, Michigan, which is home to appliance manufacturer Whirlpool Corporation and is 1 1/2 hour drive from Chicago and Grand Rapids. This established art fair attracts fine art and fine craft artists from all over the US and Canada.
