ANN ARBOR – The semiannual Westside Art Hop is returning this fall to the historic Old West Side.

The event, described as “a cross between an art walk and an art fair,” will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 2 from noon-5 p.m.

The fair features mostly local artists, but some national and international artists have been known to participate in the event, which occurs each spring and fall.

Attendees will enjoy browsing art by more than 80 exhibiting artists displayed on porches and front yards of numerous local hosts. Artwork for sale will include paintings, pottery, prints, jewelry, photographs, wood, glass, fiber and metal works.

Parking is free on neighborhood streets and in local school parking lots.
