Welcome to Swartz Creek Art in the Park (AITP 2015)

In an effort to bring a fine art event to the Swartz Creek and Genesee County community and to bring awareness to and engage young children in the fine arts, the Swartz Creek Kiwanis Club has partnered with the Swartz Creek Area Art Guild and the Swartz Creek GFWC Women's Club to bring to you the Art in the Park art fair.

Whether you are artist or patron, please use the information on this site to learn what you need to know to be able to get the most out of our event.

What is it?

AITP 2015 is the seventh installment of what is becoming one of the most successful annual art fairs in Mid-Michigan. It will be an outdoor event held on Saturday, August 29th, 2015. Patrons can expect the finest arts, entertainment, local foods, and engaging children's activities while enjoying the many comforts, joys, and experiences of Swartz Creek's beautiful Elms Park.

Elms Park?

Elms Park is Swartz Creek's premier destination for outdoor recreation, sports, and solitude. It mixes its natural ambiance with an urban location to make for one of the best outdoor venues for an art fair. Regionally located seconds from the I-69 and I-75 interchange, you will find it co-mingling with neighborhood residences and Swartz Creek's east side local business district at the Miller Road exit.


What's the deal for artists?

The Art in the Park Committee is inviting art and crafts of the finest quality to participate in the third annual Art in the Park event and enjoy a day in one of Genesee County's best recreational areas. Artists are invited to submit applications to the jury selection committee. Please click the CALL TO ARTISTS link above to make your application.

We will be advertising the event heavily in Genesee and Shiawassee Counties. We will have newspaper ads in the Flint Journal, as well as local newspapers, billboard advertisement at the Crim Festival of Races in Flint, and several television spots on ABC12 in Flint. These tv spots will also be available on several websites. Click HERE to watch the TV spot in 2011.
