The first ART FISH FUN Festival was held in 2014 in recognition of River Day. The event was initially created in an effort to combine environmental education with arts, crafts, and community. Each year, the festival has grown. Thanks to the generosity of the event’s sponsors, it can provide every attendee with exciting activities such as painting with fish, multiple bounce houses, and a free BBQ lunch.
The ART FISH FUN Festival is hosted annually by a collaborative community partnership consisting of private, public, and non-profit stakeholders: the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office, Clinton River Watershed Council, The Art Experience, The City of Pontiac, and Pure Oakland Water.
