A GREAT coincidence! The famous Ann Arbor Summer Festival 2015 is taking place from June 12 through July 5 this year. With the OPS Mid-Year Program taking place June 26 - 27, this is a wonderful opportunity to hit BOTH in one trip.

The Festival runs two programs simultaneously - one with inside activities and one with outside activities at various venues throughout the U of M campus and in downtown Ann Arbor. The inside attractions, called Main-Stage, include performances of music, dance, comedy and theater – you’ll need to purchase tickets for these events. "Top of the Park” events are admission-free outdoor offerings and feature movies under the stars, open-air performances and concerts, and other family-friendly attractions. There is also a special "Beyond” series in which attendees will enjoy unique pop-up events throughout the city of Ann Arbor. Festival-goers should not miss the opportunities for fun including Bike Nights, Global Parties such as World Music Night, educational activities, Kids Rock, Kids Zone, Rock & Recycle, and Retreat. 90% of the more than 100 events are FREE!
