Big Art Show 2020

August 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Artists, Friends and Guests of the Big Art Show:

The Big Art Show has a long-standing tradition as a summer event and is widely anticipated among the community.  As the Big Art Show moves forward, ensuring safety, we hope it will lift the hearts and spirits within the Petoskey community while providing our artists with a much-needed opportunity to showcase and market their work. This event provides the perfect opportunity to physically distance, while socially connecting and discover quality, one-of-a-kind gifts, fine art and exquisite craftsmanship by artisans from all over.

The Big Art Show will provide essential information that will identify exactly how we will make the art show a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our guests and artists. Within the guidelines that prevail, we will move gingerly through the summer until show time in August.

We are prepared to hold our event safely for both our exhibitors and our guests, and to disseminate all of this information throughout the community prior to the event.


The Big Art Show is a popular, one-day juried event that returns every year on the third Saturday of August, and is nestled within Petoskey’s breathtaking and historic Pennsylvania Park in the heart of downtown.

The event offers quality, one-of-a-kind gifts, fine art and exquisite craftsmanship by artisans from all over. Situated amongst Petoskey’s Gaslight District, the Big Art Show features artwork of all mediums including: ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture and wood. You will find everything from a one-of-a-kind statement piece for your home to an amazing piece of jewelry to give as a gift.

The Big Art Show is a free event and open to the public. 100% of the exhibitor booth fees help to provide mentors for local children in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
