This event is not in Detroit but it is another signature event that takes place in Metro Detroit and its in its 13th year. I attended for the first time this year and despite having to pay an admission fee of $3, the music, the people, the art and the food was all pleasant. Nothing at the festival is free but the music once you are admitted in. Still, it is a wonderful place to take the family and it is a great place to take a date who wants to experience new things from music to culture to scenery.
