In light of the news surrounding COVID-19 we are making proactive moves to help protect our participants and the greater overall interests of public health, safety and welfare, by postponing the Ann Arbor Monroe Street Fair to the fall.
"We are optimistically rescheduling the fair until a time when we have a better understanding of the scale of what’s going on and the actual health risks we face" says Charles Strackbein, founder of the Monroe Street Fair.
Risk mitigation is superb, and we choose to error on the side of caution. Our communities health is paramount.
Our core values rest on a foundation borne of ambition for safer and healthier lifestyle choices.
The Monroe Street Fair encourages all of its fans to take appropriate measures to help curb the spread of this serious illness.
Thank you for your understanding, endorsement and support of this positive plan going forward. Stay healthy and tuned in. We look forward to seeing everyone in the fall.

We are awaiting guidance and instructions from the city, State and CDC.
PURPOSE: to return to a safe and healthy gathering environment for all.

This is an exposition, educational and promotional event that celebrates our cannabis culture & heritage by gathering together, sharing ideas, and building community while enjoying an afternoon of camaraderie, merriment and live concert music.
“Wonder,” the first of the passions, is at play at festivals and events. It couples surprise with a wish to know more, the pleasurable promise that what is novel or rare may become familiar. —

As a leader in the Medical Marijuana Card Certification industry with 8 years experience assisting clients to get their MMMP card, there are a number of places a client may choose to engage with. That being said, getting your business name out there & driving clients into your organization often times can be a challenge. As a marketing and advertising major, how you choose to advertise your company can be costly and often times non-effective.
Upon my 1st engagement & sponsorship with Monroe Street Fair the sheer quantity of new clients we received after handing out flyers, business cards and directly speaking with people was incredible! We received hundreds of new clients (all revenue streams) into our business, most of which we scheduled right there on the spot. The cost of sponsorship was WELL WORTH IT! The notoriety & visibility of our company was on full display! From the main stage to social media, it allowed for us to be seen and heard amongst thousands of attendees, not only that day but months leading up to the event! Best advertising money can buy and clearly the right decision allowed for us to be seen and heard amongst thousands of attendees, not only that day but months leading up to the event! Best advertising money can buy and clearly the right decision.
I've been involved with MSF sponsorship for over 5 years and I'm very much looking forward to the next event!! I can't speak "highly" enough about Monroe Street Fair and their organizers. If you are looking to get your name in the spotlight, Monroe Street Fair is your best bet hands down!
