Arts, Beats & Eats
Held every Labor Day weekend the festival is designed to provide outstanding family entertainment at a very low cost. In 2009 the festival added an admission fee. This $3 until 3pm, $5 after 3pm, and $7 after 5pm admission fee supports the festival and community. The admission fee is shared with thirteen community partners. To date, over $4.5 million raised by the Arts, Beats & Eats Foundation has been donated to charity.
In 2010 Arts, Beats & Eats moved from its location in the City of Pontiac to Downtown Royal Oak and celebrated its most successful year to date, hosting more than 400,000 people over four days, and raising over $350,000 for local charities. The economic impact to the region was measured at $39 million.
Arts, Beats & Eats is held in Downtown Royal Oak.
