One such event to help send the month of August out with a bang is the [http://www.diypsi.com|DIYpsi Summer Festival], which takes place at ABC Microbrewery in Ypsilanti. This twice-a-year craft fair pulls out all the stops during its summer shows, as it continues to grow in size and amazingness each year. This not-to-be-missed show not only boosts the local economy and supports the arts, it combines so many elements to enjoy in one location, and this year they are going all out.

You’ll find over 80 top notch [http://www.diypsi.com/vendors/|craft vendors] from the Midwest selling superb handmade goods, as well as delicious foods on board, specialty craft brews, and a plethora of [http://www.diypsi.com/upcoming-events/|live music] featuring local musicians that will be jamming out all weekend enhancing the already chill vibe. The organizers have some special treats in store this summer that include [http://theatrebizarre.com/|Theatre Bizarre] working carnival games as well as a petting zoo at this indoor/outdoor extravaganza.
