Event Details

Join us at 12 PM on Saturday, October 21st for this celebration parade! Edgefest 2017 musicians, led by one of our Edgefest artists, and members of the community at large will participate in the now-traditional Edgefest parade. Instruments of all kinds create a highly creative, fun and quirky musical presence in the Kerrytown area, surprising the unsuspecting shoppers at the Saturday morning Ann Arbor Farmers' Market and surrounding areas. The public is invited to tag along with any kind of instrument they have at hand, including bells and whistles! Meet us at Kerrytown Concert House at 11:30 am.
