Ann Arbor Art Fair 2011

Ann Arbor Art Fair iPhone App

The Ann Arbor Art Fair?
There’s an app for that.

We have plenty of links to useful resources for enjoying the Ann Arbor Art Fairs below, but here’s your first idea for visiting the fairs this year: start and end your day at Main Party! Why? Because we’re in a perfect spot, are open 7am to 2am, and have everything you need to start your day, and everything you need to wrap it up pleasantly. First of all, we’re just blocks from a handy freeway arrival and escape route on US-23. Second, we’re less than 50 feet from a parking structure. After you’ve parked, we have just about anything you need to get your day rolling: coffee, bottled water, juices, a small deli, energy bars and energy drinks, basic sundries, even handy items like aspirin and allergy medicine. When you’re ready to head out, we’re just a couple blocks from the action. And when you’ve had your fun, we’ll be here at the end of the day with the largest selection of fine wine, craft beers, and fine spirits in Ann Arbor, so you can pick up something nice to unwind with when you get home. But enough about us, below are pretty much all the links and resources you’ll need to enjoy the fairs, all in one handy place. First of all, you need to know that the Ann Arbor Art Fair is actually FOUR fairs. We’ll start off with links to each fair’s sites, which all have plenty of other links to useful information. So if you’re leaving us now, we hope you appreciate our little Art Fair Guide, and we’ll look forward to seeing you during the fair!

    Thanks, Admin, for both signing-up/ listing Main Party in our new app AND mentioning the City Guide app in your blog post here. Every small biz should have a guy/gal on top of their digital media stuff like you appear to be. 🙂

    Thanks Gint! We do our best to keep on top of things, and to promote local. We’re equally impressed with the hipness of your app! What a great idea. Hope you got it rolling in time to enjoy some success with it during the fairs.

    And thanks for the kind words in general. We’re getting ready to ramp up our site from its current “Web 1.9” state to something a little more forward-looking in the very near future.
