Arts du Jour

Presented by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort & Beaumont Hospital

Arts du Jour is the official charity preview event of Ford Arts, Beats & Eats presented by FirstMerit Bank. The event will take place in Downtown Royal Oak on Thursday, August 21, 2014 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.

The purpose of Arts du Jour is to raise money and awareness for local charities, while giving attendees a special preview of the 2014 Ford Arts, Beats & Eats Festival. The event will feature live music performances from four of the bands performing at Ford Arts, Beats & Eats, art exhibits from festival artists, as well as more than 50 restaurants serving tastes, including many from the Labor Day weekend festival. The event benefits ten local non-profits by donating 75% of each ticket sold to the charity of the purchasers’ choice.

Arts du Jour is one of the many ways Ford Arts, Beats & Eats presented by FirstMerit Bank supports local non-profits.  Last year’s Ford Arts, Beats & Eats raised over $350,000 for local non-profits and this year we are attempting a one-year record of $500,000!  Your Arts du Jour ticket purchase helps us on our way to this goal- thank you!  In our 15 year history, Arts, Beats & Eats has raised over $3.5 million for local charities and non-profits. 

This year’s event will take place outside the Royal Oak Library on Barbara A. Hallmann Memorial Plaza, just across Troy Street from the Royal Oak Farmers Market.  A preview of the Juried Fine Arts Show will be located inside the Library.
