Art on the Bay to take place in downtown Alpena this weekend

A tradition that’s been a part of Alpena’s heritage for more than 40 years is making its way back to the sunrise side.

Art on the Bay will kick off this Saturday and last through the weekend. The event is the Thunder Bay Arts Council’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The festival will be home to over 100 vendors, multiple food options, and live music over the two days. Co–chair for Art on the Bay, Clint Kendziorski, says this is an event everyone in area gets in on.

“Probably the most unique experience is that it is on the bay. We’re right by the band shell and by the yacht club in downtown Alpena and we have vendors that come from Florida, California, you name it. We have somebody from almost every state.”

Kendziorski says nearly 3,000 shoppers visit the event and there will be something for everyone. Admission to the event is free, but be sure to bring some extra cash if you want to splurge at food trucks or other vendors.
