Rows of Art Vendors, Lots of Food & Drink, Tons of Fun

Arts, Beats & Eats is held over Labor Day weekend in downtown Royal Oak.

A highly anticipated annual festival, it features art vendors, food and drink from many local restaurants and tons of music.

On the beats front, local, national and international acts play everything from the blues and country to indie rock. Food tents are everywhere with various delicious smells drawing people in. And the rows upon rows of artisans presenting their work is as diverse as the beats and eats, from paintings, sculptures and photography.

Are there rides, games and fun stuff for the kids? You bet.
