In 2017, founders of Detroit Music Weekend partnered with the City of Detroit, Detroit City Council, Detroit Theater District Business Association, Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau, The Carr Center, Detroit Opera House, Motown Museum, Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts, R&B Music Hall of Fame, and over 40 arts organizations to create an annual destination weekend in Detroit.
DMW commissions, produces, presents and markets a full spectrum of performances; music, dance and theater. Showcase stages offer opportunity to up-and-coming artists, invigorating the pipeline of next-gen talent. Cultural organizations, restaurants and retailers are invited to add to the fun by offering performances and activities whether on-site or in their own location.
Most importantly, the Detroit Music Weekend brings together the fans and supporters of each participating artist, performing company, and organization. Collectively, this begins a new narrative that we are a unified Metropolitan region using the arts to create productive working relationships between the city and suburbs.
Detroit Music Weekend proclaims it to the world: “Detroit is open for business!!!”
DETROIT MUSIC WEEKEND grows bigger, better, and bolder every year featuring an ecletic group of unique Detroit shopping and dining opportunities, multiple downtown happenings, and – of course – music, and lots of it. This blockbuster event is what the world expects from Detroit, the city’s performing arts come together for a total downtown Detroit experience. Please join us for unique Motor City Weekend!
