Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Some weeks finding 5 great events in Detroit for the roundup is difficult. I mean, there are always things going on but sometimes they don’t excite me. This is not one of those weeks. Personally, I’m drooling over all of these events and wish I could fit every one of them into my schedule. 

The official lighting of the Campus Martius Tree is November 20th.

Weekend Roundup

1. Evil Dead: The Musical - The show is based on Sam Raimi's cult horror films and be warned there is a "splatter zone" so bring or buy a poncho. Tickets are still available for Friday, November 20.

2. Detroit Urban Craft Fair - The 4th annual event features the work of over 50 independent artists and alternative crafters. The Majestic Theatre, November 21st.

3. City of Detroit's Official Holiday Tree Lighting at Campus Martius Park - The tree will be lit around 8pm. Other activities include ice skating, carriage rides, entertainment, and food. November 20.

4. Ringling Bros. and Barnam & Bailey Circus presents Over The Top - Run off and join the circus or at least go see it! Witness flying dogs, skipping elephants, and daredevil feats. Through November 22.

5. Science Rocks! - Rock out at the Detroit Science Center. The evening includes live music by local bands, dancing, and free Michigan brewed beer compliments of Woodward Avenue Brewers. November 19.

Hi Becks. Thanks for mentioning the Ringling Bros. Over the Top show! I can tell you firsthand that after hanging out with some of the performers and animals this week, this show is fun for all ages.

Another event is Techkaraoke Friday night at Royal Kubo in Clawson. Get your sing on!

When looking for something local to do, I stop by your blog and check out your weekend roundup!

There is a nice little art fair tonight (Friday) and tomorrow at the Pleasant Ridge Community Center at 4 Ridge Rd. Here's a facebook link to the artist's work:

You're welcome. And I'm totally jealous that you got to hang out with the animals! Hoping to make Tech Karaoke tonight.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the roundup and for adding the art fair.

Becks, I'm bummed I'm just now seeing this, but thanks for the great Tree Lighting shout-out! Did you get a chance to go, and I somehow missed you?

You are most welcome! I missed the Tree Lighting, I had two other events going on that night. But we'll be down to Campus Martius soon.
