City Sponsored Programs

Gazebo Rental Information

Street Art Program
The City of Algonac is looking for interested artists (no residency requirements) to create clever creations from common objects around the city. These “art interruptions” offer passers-by a brief pause, prompting a moment of appreciation, humor, reflection or surprise. The goal of this program is to embrace the artistic talents of local individuals while displaying creative artwork throughout the community. Artists are encouraged to incorporate the character of the surrounding environment and neighborhood into their artwork. There is no cost to apply for the program. Artists are responsible for providing their own materials.

To participate, complete the application/design proposal and waiver and submit forms to cityclerk@cityofalgonac.org. IF you're a student, fill out this Student application. The city will contact you once your application has been approved.


Memorial Chair Program
In the summer of 2018, the City retired the Memorial Bench program because all the available spots for memorial plaques were full. In an effort to bring some color and new interest to the Riverfront Park boardwalk, the Adirondack Memorial Chair Program was initiated. Anyone interested in making a donation for a chair with a plaque can complete the application and submit the form to cityclerk@cityofalgonac.org.
