THIS WEEKEND: Annual Charivari Festival Returns to Belle Isle

Great ideas and events are often birthed by a group of creative individuals and tastemakers who make up an ecosystem of talent.

Detroit’s dance music community and history is one of the most rich, diverse and talent-laden of any city in the world! This community was created and is maintained by some and everyone – the dreamers and the promoters, the artists and the producers, the curators and the patrons, the master and the apprentice, the expert and the amateur ALL have the ability to contribute something to the community.

Join the possibility. Join in on the fun.

Share this event. Invite your friends. Bring the family.
