This is a past event.

Arts, Beats, and Eats

This enormous Labor Day celebration got it start in the early 2000s in downtown Pontiac, but in 2010, the operation packed its bags and moved to the more hip destination of Royal Oak. The festival runs down South Washington with tendrils reaching down adjoining side streets. As it’s name gives away, Arts, Beats, and Eats brings together America’s three favorite things: eating, shopping, and music. Attendees are encouraged to devour samples from local restaurants till their pants pop, spend their cash on kitschy art fair items, and drunkenly dance along to music by local and national musicians.

Sept. 1-4 on South Washington in downtown Royal Oak; 248-541-7550; artsbeatseats.com; admission fees vary.
