Visiting Detroit

This summer, the people of Detroit-area communities like LivoniaAllen Park, and Woodhaven head into Detroit to join in with more special events, festivals, big-league games, and other activities than any other season. It's a great time of year to see what keeps the Motor City moving.

Take part in America’s Pastime with the Detroit Tigers as they host Major League Baseball action at Comerica Park through the first week of October. Then, trade the no-football blues for "Honolulu blue" 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 18th against the Tennessee Titans.

The 2016 African World Festival is one of Detroit's cultural highlights this summer. From August 19th through 21st, 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. Be there early to take it all in – things get started at 11 a.m., all three days.

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 2016 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, spanning Labor Day Weekend.

The very next week, on September 10th, the 2016 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 15th Annual Tour de Troit Ride to get a better look at some of Detroit’s most iconic focal points on September 17th. 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.
