The 5th annual Funky Ferndale Art Fair will take place along Nine mile, from Woodward to Planavon, in Ferndale. More than 100 artists from 22 states will be presenting their art pieces for sale and display. In addition to activities for young people, fair goers can also buy art created by young artists. The fair will feature traditional artists, as well as non-traditional styles, with edgy messages. In other words, art that won’t just sit on the walls behaving itself.
