Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

September has arrived and so has the awesome weather! Labor Day weekend is upon us and there is a ton to do in Metro Detroit and Michigan. So, if you’re headed up north or are sticking around the city you have many options on how to fill your weekend.

Weekend Roundup

1. Arts, Beats, and Eats -This Pontiac festival celebrates music, food, and art. Kid Rock even stepped up to the plate to help with sponsorship this year. We'll be heading out to the fest on Saturday to catch Joan Jett. Yep, put another dime in the jukebox, baby! September 4th-7th.

2. Detroit International Jazz Festival - America's largest free jazz festival takes place in Hart Plaza. September 4th-7th.

3. Hamtramck Labor Day Festival - This isn't just a Polish festival anymore, it also features food and music from Bangladesh, Bosnia, and the Middle East. However, The Polish Muslims still play and there is a pierogi eating contest. September 4th-7th.

4. Mackinac Bridge Walk - Every Labor Day our Mighty Mac opens up to pedestrians for a 5 mile walk. I know it's a bit far away from Detroit but I think this is very cool and wish we were participating! September 7th.

There are also other Labor Day bridge walks throughout Michigan.

5. College Football - The college football season opens up this week and both U of M and MSU are playing at home on Saturday. The Spartans start their season at noon and the Wolverines kick off at 3:30. Go Green! Go Blue! Go Blue! September 5th.

Don't forget the Michigan State Fair and the Michigan Renaissance Festival are still in full swing this weekend!

Do you know of a great event going in on Metro Detroit this weekend? Add it to the comments and share it with us!

P.S. In this post I was going to tell you that I don't know much about jazz, that my husband knows all the words to the Polish song Sto Lat, and that I almost didn't go to Marquette University because it didn't have a football program. But, I lost this post twice thanks to Firefox crashing so I'll have to tell you that stuff another time.
