Shelby Township Municipal Grounds
Located at 52700 Van Dyke, just south of 24 Mile Road, the Shelby Township Municipal Grounds come alive with the sights and sounds of Summer on Wednesday evenings in July. Concerts in the bandshell bring families from far and wide to enjoy free musical performances by a variety of entertainers.
The 15-acre Grounds are also the home of the Annual Art Fair, which is held the second weekend in August. This popular event features artists & artisans from around Michigan and the US and Canada, family entertainment, refreshments, and the Kid’s Craft and Activity Area. The Shelby Township Historical Committee also opens the Andrews Schoolhouse Museum and Historic Hope Chapel to give visitors a look at our Township’s past. With free admission and free parking, the Shelby Township Art Fair is a great, leisurely way for the whole family to spend a Summer afternoon.
