Art & Beer & Cars – Ypsilanti is a Great Town

Cleaning and servicing the fireplaces and chimneys of our neighbors throughout Michigan has given those of us at Clean Sweeps of Michigan the amazing privilege of getting to know more about Ypsilanti. Just 40 miles or so from Detroit, Ypsilanti has a lot to offer, whether you’re the outdoor or the indoor type. If you haven’t been to Ypsilanti yet, now’s the time!

The Annual Bike Ypsi Spring Ride & Festival

Well, you may have missed this year’s Bike Ypsi Spring Ride and Festival, but there’s always next year! Held on the first Sunday of every May, the guided ride is designed for bikers of all ages and skill levels. There’s a 15 mile ride for those looking to explore, a 30 mile ride for the athletically-inclined, and a 5 mile ride for families. And don’t worry – when you work up an appetite, there is a plethora of food and fun to be had.

Feeling Artistic?

Through Nov. 5, make sure to visit Riverside Arts for the Ypsilanti Art Incubator. It is intended to be a real and virtual space for collaborations between artists in our area. For additional details, see their  FB Event Page. Check out www.riversidearts.org.

Art, Music, And Brew

Visiting Ypsilanti in the summer? Check out the annual Shadow Art Fair. Every July, the Corner Brewery hosts the fair, which features local music, local art and cold beer. It’s an all-day affair so make sure you wear sunblock! To start planning for next year, check out their Facebook page.

You can also check out the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival, which is an annual celebration of craft beer, food, art, music, hand-made goods and more! The Heritage Festival is a free 3 day event, and is guaranteed fun for everyone. To find out more about the festival, check out www.ypsilantiheritagefestival.com.

Depot Town Flea Market

If you’re in Ypsilanti on a Sunday, you’ll want to be sure and check out the great things at the Depot Town Freight House Plaza. From antiques to hand-crafted pieces, the Flea Market has plenty to offer.

Cars, Cars, And More Cars

Ypsilanti hosts monthly car shows from June to October, so if cars are what get your engine revving, Ypsilanti is the place for you. This September, be sure to check out the 17th Annual Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show. Can’t make it in September? Head to the SEMI Antique Truck Show in October. For details, visit their Facebook page.
