Fall For Fringe ARTS

September 28, 2023

5:30 – 8pm

Join us for a uniquely Riverside, uniquely Ypsilanti night to remember.

Fall for Fringe Arts is an exciting take on our annual fundraiser event. This year we’ve chosen to highlight the arts on the periphery: body art, henna, graffiti art, puppetry, a silent and live auction, and more. Your attendance helps shine a light on these incredible art forms that often get overlooked. Your ticket purchase makes it possible to broaden our creative community’s reach, expand Riverside Art Center’s programming, and make art accessible for all. Join us in this celebration, and don’t forget to wear your dancing shoes!
