Preview of Arts, Beats, and Eats

Woodward Dream Cruise may herald the coming of the end of summer, but it isn't the actual event that is the end of summer. That distinction belongs to Arts, Beats, and Eats. Here's today's coverage from WXYZ-TV's YouTube Channel and Royal Oak Patch.

Arts, Beats & Eats

Setup is continuing for Arts, Beats and Eats which opens tomorrow.

That's the video teaser from WXYZ. Here's the festival guide from Royal Oak Patch.

What to see, hear and eat, as well as everything you need to know to enjoy the fest.

Oakland County’s biggest summer festival celebrating art, music, and food happens this weekend in downtown Royal Oak and Patch has you covered. Here's what you need to know to enjoy the popular event.
Arts, Beats & Eats: Guide to the Arts
What to see at the Juried Fine Arts Show, one of the major parts of the festival.
I don't know if I miss the Ann Arbor Art Fairs enough to look at the art show.  Good thing there's more going on than just art.

Arts, Beats & Eats: What to Hear

Check out this lineup.
Vince Gill, Brett Michaels, Panic at the Disco and George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic are the main headliners on the Michigan Lottery National Recording Artists Stage this year, but there another 250 acts performing on 10 other stages.
If my wife and I had more energy, there were places to sit (I think we would have to stand), and the weather were a little cooler, we'd be very tempted to go. We might not miss the music entirely. Last year, we could hear the bands playing from our house, more than a mile away.

Oh, yes, the Eats: Arts, Beats & Eats: Where to Dine
There'll be plenty of choices from nearly 70 food vendors at the festival. Now, where to go first?
This all looks very tempting. However, not only could I hear the music last year, but the event was so well attended that it exceeded capacity several times and entry was closed. Talk about being too successful for its own good! Just the same, I promise to keep you all updated as the news comes in.
