Visiting Detroit

In the summertime, visitors and residents of suburban communities like Livonia, Allen Park, and Woodhaven head into Detroit to join in with more special events, festivals, big-league games, and other activities than any other time of year. This is the season to see what makes the Motor City hum.

Downtown Detroit is home to some of the most storied sports franchises in the country. Enjoy America’s Pastime as the fierce Detroit Tigers continue to host Major League Baseball action at Comerica Park through the first week of October.

Then, say goodbye to the no-football blues when the Detroit Lions storm the gridiron at Ford Field. The Lions host preseason games in August before playing the first home game of the regular season on September 27th against the Denver Broncos.

Detroit’s heritage has long been linked with African-American culture and the 2015 African World Festival is a celebration of just that. From August 14th through 16th, the event showcases the works of local artists and craftspeople, while serving up an array of delicious food and treating visitors to live music at the Charles H. Wright Museum in Detroit. Get there early to take it all in – the all-day fun begins at 11 a.m.

The Motor City’s known the world over as the birthplace of Motown and the soulful sound that defined a generation, but this September, it’s a few other styles of music filling the air. The 2015 Detroit Jazz Festival is a massive gathering of local, regional, and international jazz musicians, performing at venues like Hart Plaza and Campus Martius. The event promises performances, jazz workshops, talks, children's activities, and fireworks, September 4th through 7th.

The very next week, on September 12th, the 2015 Dally in the Alley invites you to dig a little deeper and find a true sense of community. One of the country’s only non-corporate-sponsored community festivals of its size, this event is set to feature an artists gallery, four stages of live music, and other street fair fun, taking over the entire block between Hancock Street and Forest Ave. from 2nd Ave. to 3rd Street.

Join in with the 14th Annual Tour de Troit Ride to get a better look at some of Detroit’s most iconic focal points on September 19th. The bicycle tour starts and finishes at downtown’s Roosevelt Park, located at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and 14th Street in the Corktown area.
