The Arboretum in Ann Arbor sternly informed us a few years back that they don't allow organized events without their permission. Not wanting to cause trouble, we have been careful to announce every year since that on the last day of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs, there will be no activity organized by the Rainbow Family from 2PM to dusk in the Arb; folks who come out to the Arb do so of their own volition; if they bring drums and food, that's nobody's business but their own. Remember, people, the revolution will not be organized! Contact:
