Event Summary: Parrot Feathers - Fine Art and Craft Show is an event taking place during the second weekend of the Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival. The Cheeseburger in Caseville festival is a yearly, tropical themed, festival in the small town of Caseville Michigan. The festival draws tens of thousands of people to the town every year. Caseville has gained the nick name, Key North, because of the massive popularity of this 10 day island themed festival. This quaint little beach town, in the thumb of Michigan, transforms into a palm tree, parrot and flamingo covered, sand in your toes party. There are events for the whole family and fun for the adults, many different kinds of cheeseburgers, a lot of tropical music and concerts (Jimmy Buffet songs being a favorite all around town), and this year there will be an art and craft show to add to the fun. A small group of creatives working with the Caseville Chamber of Commerce are putting together the first ever Parrot Feathers - Fine Art and Craft Show. This art and craft show will take place on the second Saturday of the festival, August 17th, starting at 10:00am and ending at 6:00pm. Fifty artists and craftspeople will be chosen to exhibit their work in a grassy open lot, located just east of the Wooded Island Sports Grill in Caseville Mi (6868 Michigan St, Caseville, MI 48725). We plan to bring a variety of professional artists and craftspeople together to show, and sell, their work to the parrot loving people of the festival. This event will be a lively celebration of art and craft in the midst of island fun.
