Big Art Show 2020

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


Like many, we are closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus and are committed to following the protocols and procedures outlined by public health officials. Our first priority is ensuring the health and safety of our artists, customers, and volunteers.

We are thrilled to have artists continuing to submit applications and very much continue to welcome any questions surrounding the event. To aid in the uncertainty surrounding travel plans and future commitments, the Big Art Show is extending the artist application deadline to Friday, May 29, 2020. It is our hope that the coming weeks will offer more clarity regarding the severity and length of the virus, but we encourage artists to apply as soon as possible!


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.

Volunteer opportunities available, please contact alyssa.bright@bigsupnorth.com or 231-946-2447 ext. 219
