Getting To The Art Fair

Parking Services

This year, Ann Arbor Art Fair shuttle parking will be at Briarwood Mall and Huron High School. Parking at these locations is free, and shuttles cost a small fee. 

Free and convenient parking options are available at two Park & Ride locations.

Briarwood Mall

  • Parking: free
  • Round-trip: $3; one-way $1.50
  • K-12 students with student ID and Fare Deal cardholders, one-way: $0.75
  • Senior/A-Ride and GoldRide cardholders and kids ages 5 and younger ride free
  • Shuttle stops: Main Street at William, and on State Street near South University
  • Buses return to both parking locations from either shuttle bus stops
  • Thursday through Saturday: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Huron High School (located at 2727 Fuller Road)

  • Parking: free

Shuttles make rounds every 10 to 15 minutes and are air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible. They drop passengers off at several points throughout the fair and run one hour before opening and one hour after closing. If convenience is your thing, this is a great option.

City and University of Michigan parking structures

You can park in city parking lots for $18 a day or $9 after 5 p.m. Structures at the University of Michigan are $10 after 3:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday and $10 all day on the weekend. You can find U-M structures on the following streets:

  • Church
  • Fletcher
  • Hill
  • Thayer 
  • Thompson

Parking at structures is a bit more pricey than the shuttles option, but it will get you within walking distance of the fair. 

Fair Mini-Buses

The fair operates Art-Go-Round mini buses throughout the event that ride around the perimeter of the 30-block fair. Rides are free and conveniently pass the parking structures. 

Accessibility
A limited number of wheelchairs are available for use at the fair thanks in part to Evangelical Homes of Michigan. Booths are located on State Street at Madison and Washington at Fletcher. Chairs are first come, first served.
