FoolMoon // April 6 // Sunset – Midnight // Corner of Ashley + Washington St

FoolMoon is the nighttime kick-off event to our foolish weekend! In the heart of downtown Ann Arbor, everyone and anyone is invited to gather in the streets to shake off those cold gray winters. The skyline will be filled with luminaries, interactive installations, laser shows, a beer tent sponsored by Grizzly Peak, DJ’s raised into the air, live dance performances, and oh so many more de-LIGHT-fool surprises! If you have never been to FoolMoon before, you won’t want to miss it. If you have been to FoolMoon, we will see your glowing faces there!

Who: YOU (and your mother, your best friend, your neighbor, and your cousin’s daughter… this event is for EVERY age!!)
Join the commUNITY Downtown on Washington and Ashley St
Be there by 8:15 pm to watch the Luminary Processionals make their grand entrance
Why not.



Bring your hand-made luminary to a FoolMoon processional at one of three locations: Kerrytown Farmer’s Market, Slauson Middle School, and the UM Museum of Art. Processions begin at sundown (gathering begins at 7:45 pm).

Processionals will be led by merry-making sound-makers, a glowing stilt-walker, blue jellyfish, or swarms of bees. So follow the leader.

Please remember to be safe. Stay on the sidewalk and take care crossing the street. There will be illuminated volunteers helping everyone (and their luminaries!) cross the street and arrive at the event safely.

Processionals culminate Downtown along Ashley and Washington St to crowds of cheering Fools.



Want to bring your own glowing creation to the event? Check out one of our drop-in luminary workshops at Workantile from 10 am – 5 pm or build a luminary at home!
