THIS WKEND: 5th Annual Detroit Urban Craft Fair


10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4
11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5
at the Fillmore Detroit
2115 Woodward Ave
Detroit, MI 48201

This is THE hand-made holiday shopping event — scratch that, it's THE holiday shopping event period. Every year, the DUCF gets bigger and more filled with awesome. See for yourself: visit their site and see a preview of all the local (and not-so-local) talent bringing hand-made cool to the city.

This year, the organizers are making it even easier, partnering with The Night Move to shuttle your bustle all day Saturday and Sunday. More on how to get there:

How much does it cost?
Admission is just a $1 and helps cover the cost of running the fair. Coming back for both days? Ask for a wristband at the entry table and get in free Sunday.

Where do I park?
Because the Fillmore is right across the street from Comerica Park, there is tons of parking — mostly in paid lots. We did a little digging and found that Saturday morning parking will be at a reduced rate ($2-3) until early afternoon, then event rates will go into effect, as The Fox Theatre has an event that afternoon.

On Sunday, there is a Lions Game in the afternoon, so we recommend carpooling to make parking more affordable. For another cheap option, you can try to snag some street parking or jump on The People Mover, which has a stop very close to the Fillmore (Grand Circus Park).

Take our free shuttle!
Want to skip the parking hunt? We are partnering with the Night Move to provide a FREE shuttle bus service all weekend during fair hours (10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday) for our patrons!

We will be picking up and dropping off patrons at:

Slow’s BBQ
2138 Michigan Ave, Detroit, Michigan 48216

and

City Bird
460 W. Canfield, Detroit, MI 48201

The shuttle will run on a continuous loop from Slow’s to City Bird to DUCF (a 20-25 minute ride total for the entire loop).
