Festivals and Community Events

This event spans the period from 2009-09-04 to 2009-09-07
Arts, Beats & Eats is excited to add to its name, mission and purpose in 2009. We are now Arts, Beats & Eats - Festival of Hope and we are excited to announce new changes and partners for the 2009 festival.

Arts, Beats & Eats will still feature The HealthPlus Art Fair, one of the top art shows in the US, incredible food, more than 125 bands on six stages, and dynamic and interactive fun for the kids. Here are the changes in store for this year:

ADMISSION FEE: We do have to charge a small fee to make up for lost sponsorship revenue. It will be a $2 per person donation, and the fee will be split with local non-profits. To provide our guests with additional value for the $2, we are doing the following: During the first three hours of the festival on Saturday, Sunday and Monday all paid kids admissions will come with a free carnival ride or fun inflatable, and all paid adult admissions (over 21) will come with a free bottle of water, courtesy of Pepsi. The festival will also be free of charge for all guests on Friday with Local Four Free Friday until 6pm.

IMPORTANT REVENUE FOR LOCAL CHARITIES: We are partnering with thirteen local charities that will accept donations at nine festival entry points. All admission fees will be split between the Arts, Beats & Eats Foundation to support festival expenses and the non-profit partners. For a list of charities click here:

VALUE TO OUR GUESTS: We sell our food and beverages in tickets at 16 tickets for $10. We will be lowering our non-alcoholic drink costs to four tickets down from five, and keeping beer at the same cost of 8 tickets for a 16 oz beer. All food items will be priced at no more than 8 tickets ($5). Once you get in, all concerts are free. Parking will be reduced from $10 to $8 at the Phoenix Plaza and there are other downtown lots where parking is available for $5 to $7.

BIG THREE SPONSORSHIP: We are excited to promote and support Detroit's Automakers by offering complementary exhibit space and promotion to Chrysler, Ford and GM. Lets buy from the Big Three and help Metro Detroit, and you will see the latest products to chose from in special exhibits.

MORE CULTURE: Arts, Beats & Eats is committed to the arts and will offer the Oakland County Summer Arts Program, as well as performances by Eisenhower Dance and Detroit Chamber Winds. In addition, Metro Parent Magazine will operate our arts and crafts area providing great opportunity for kids to make and take art projects while at the festival. Also, Congratulations to Michael Palazuk of Clawson for winning our 1st annual Poster Art Contest. To see all of the Arts, Beats & Eats Posters click here!

COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT: Arts, Beats & Eats will continue to feature the ITC Greenways (link to greenways) including unique exhibits and "green ways" the festival operates to reduce its waste.

Thank you to all those that have attended our event for free the last eleven years. We HOPE that you join us this year and support culture, diversity, quality of life and great non-profit partners. Become a fan and tell you friends. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and you might win cool festival goodies, passes and tickets. Please note that guests 18-20 that arrive after 7pm without a parent will be charged $5 admission. Also, no one under 17 is admitted without a parent after 6:30pm.

We would like to especially thank our sponsors including Oakland County, Flagstar Bank, Pepsi, Comcast, Budweiser, City of Pontiac DDA, Soaring Eagle Casino, Michigan Lottery, and many others. We'd also like to thank the City of Pontiac for continuing to be the generous host and home of Arts, Beats & Eats. Please visit out our sponsor page where we recognize all the great entities that make our festival possible.

We'd also like to thank our media partners including: WDIV Local 4, Comcast, The Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, Oakland Press, Metro Times, 89X, 93.9 The River, WWJ Newsradio 950, WJR, 99.5 WYCD, Smooth Jazz V98.7, 94.7 WCSX, 101.1 WRIF, 96.3 WDVD, Channel 95.5, Mix 92.3, FM98 WJLB, 100.3 WNIC, 104.3 WOMC, & 97.1 The Ticket.
