Featured Events in Detroit:
Often regarded as the hub of auto manufacturing in the United States, there is much more to Detroit than cars. The largest city in Michigan, Detroit has plenty to offer in terms of culture, history and sports. With a distinct atmosphere unlike any other place in the country, a trip to Detroit will surprise visitors with all there is to do and see.
Perhaps most notable is the passionate sports culture that dominates the city. Though it is home to a team from all four major sports, Detroit is first and foremost a hockey city. The Red Wings of the NHL are one of the most successful franchises in any league, and have won an astonishing 11 Stanley Cup championships. The Wings, as they are affectionately known, play their home games at the Joe Louis Arena, one of the oldest and most storied hockey venues in the country.
While hockey may dominate the sports scene, it is certainly not the only team to call the city home. The Detroit Tigers are one of the oldest teams in the MLB, and have the fan base to prove it. The Tigers have played their home games at beautiful Comerica Park since 2000, and it remains one of the nicest parks in the entire league.
As for the NFL, the Detroit Lions are proud to call Detroit home. Though they may not be as accomplished as their MLB and NHL brethren, the Lions enjoy a loyal following and play in expansive Ford Field.
The Pistons of the NBA started out in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but moved to Detroit in 1957 and have won three league championships. They play at The Palace of Auburn Hills, which certainly lives up to its name.
Outside of sports, there is still plenty to do in Detroit. When summer rolls around, there are several music festivals which come to the city. Most popular is the Detroit International Jazz Festival, which is held every Labor Day weekend, and is the largest such event in North America. Additionally, the Detroit Electronic Music Festival has been held Memorial Day weekend every year since 2000.
The theater scene is also large in Detroit, as it is part of the Broadway circuit. Specifically, the Detroit Fox Theater is one of the oldest and most historical venues in the country.
Whether you’re looking to catch a baseball game, music festival or simply just enjoy the charm of a working class city, Detroit has something for everyone.
