Art Affair activities are FREE both days. Saturday's show features Granville Rotary Club's Wine Festival from 1-5 p.m. offering international wine tasting, food sampling and Belgian Beer Garden.  Wine Festival and Belgian Beer Garden  require ticket purchase and represent the Rotary Club's largest yearly fundraiser.  Wine Festival participants are permitted to peruse and shop artist booths with wine glass in hand.  New for 2012 are Featured Artist Demonstrations/Seminars sponsored by  The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art and Technology on Sunday.   Granville Art Affair & Wine Festival is presented by Grand Scheme Promotions LLC and the Granville Rotary Club.
Dublin Art Fair
Located on the front  lawn of Sells Middle School and Indian Run Elementary School off of the US 33-SR 161-Bridge Street exit in Dublin, Ohio.  This highly visible show benefits from a significant volume of drive-by  traffic in the desirable historic district of Dublin.  New dates this year coincide with the Arthritis Foundation Classic Car Show & Cruise-In (www.arthritisautoshow.com) held less than 1 mile from show site.  Free trolley rides between the Art Show and Car Show will increase attendance significantly.  Fine art, live entertainment,  fine food and an art project activity tent for all ages make this art fair a popular one.  Show site for 2012 will expand allowing more space between/around individual artist booth spaces.   The Dublin Art Fair is presented by the Dublin  Area Art League and Grand Scheme Promotions LLC.
