Ann Arbor Art Fair

Thu., July 20, Fri., July 21, Sat., July 22 and Sun., July 23

This massive street fair is actually made up for four separate entities, but you’d never know, judging by the way they weave together through the streets of downtown Ann Arbor. This absolutely enormous fair will feature everything from fine arts to those hippie wrap skirts you can wear 1,000 different ways — and everything in between. You’ll be in the middle of an already bustling Ann Arbor shopping district, so expect lots of opportunities to nosh on food from local vendors and shop at sidewalk sales at local stores. You’ll never get a spot near the fair, so we recommend parking at a nearby mall or high school. Some offer shuttles for free, while others are a mere $3 for a round trip. Check the street fair’s website for more details. Free

Primus

Thu., July 20, 6 p.m.

If you’ve never seen a live show from one of the most influential alt-rock bands, you’re in for a treat. Long featured solos and improvised renditions of their classic songs are set to visually stunning stage designs. The band also uses live sets to showcase some secret talents, like lead singer Les Claypool’s use of a whamola during drum solos. Primus defies labels with genre titles like ‘psychedelic polka’ and ‘thrash-funk’ so you never really know what you’re going to get in the live performance, but we guarantee it will be an impressive display of the band’s usual showmanship. $25
