Looking to have fun outdoors while enjoying the last two weeks of September?
Mount Clemens town center is there for you.
From the city’s very first Uptown Mount Clemens fall arts and crafts show to a last-minute Uptown Friday Night concert, city boosters have created cool lineup to bask in those fading warm days.
The Downtown Development Authority hosted the Fall Art & Craft Show on Saturday and Sunday to provide people with an outdoor event with shows, various arts and crafts, and food trucks. Many local businesses are planning to open with various promotions.
âWhen I heard that Sterlingfest had been canceled again this year and schools weren’t hosting craft shows, I realized it had been difficult for local artists and artisans,â Michelle said. Weiss, DDA Marketing Director. âI thought how difficult it can be? Let’s give it a whirl. It will give people a place to go and watch, and Ardis Music composed the music for us to see. “
Among the vendors’ stands there will be Dobre Foods with homemade pierogi and Polish specialties; Ruby’s Barkery offers baked dog treats; Jameson Galleries will bring an assortment of pearl jewelry; and Divine Steel Arts with custom silhouettes and garden decor.
