SOBO Arts Festival

June 26-27, 2015

The Arts will be celebrated in Boyne City, Michigan at the 6th annual SOBO Arts Festival. Artists from throughout the US and Michigan will be featured at the two-day festival.

Located in the heart of Boyne City’s historic and vibrant downtown called SOBO, this Arts Festival begins on Friday evening, with Stroll the Streets and a wine tasting event, artist demonstrations, and an opportunity to "meet and greet" some artists. The festival continues Saturday with "SOBO by the Shore" art fair at Peninsula Beach. Events for children and artist workshops are on top along with the juried art fair and musical offerings.

On Saturday (10-4pm) "SOBO by the SHORE" festival activities take place at Veterans Park, a beautifully shaded park on the shore of Lake Charlevoix, voted 2nd best lake in the entire nation. Artist demonstrations, hand-on and children’s activities blend with over 40 artists on display in this juried art show creating a true celebration of the arts. Food Trucks featuring farm to table menus will also be onsite.

New this year: The SOBO Arts Festival en plein air paint-out designed to connect art and people to their surroundings. The artists will be inspired by the beauty of historic Boyne City, situated on the shore of Lake Charlevoix. The competition will run from 8am–3pm featuring local and regional artists. The event will bring in art lovers and collectors, as well as those who want to participate in the community-centered event planned for downtown Boyne City. An exhibition and sale will be held at 4pm at Northern Table in the SOBO Arts District of Boyne City.
