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 22, 2013 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 2013 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. 

Arts du Jour is excited to announce a new location for the 2013 event. 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 few restaurants will also be located inside the Library.
