It's Time to Dig Downtown!

Dig Downtown is a new initiative by the Downtown Detroit Partnership to unite 5 Detroit districts, Downtown, Midtown, Corktown, Eastern Market, and New Center, into one greater downtown area. When people say they are going “downtown” it usually means to one of these 5 areas.

The website is a resource that includes events, restaurants, maps, and itineraries for families, groups, and individuals of all ages.

Dig Downtown Week began yesterday and runs through October 24th. All metro Detroiters are encouraged to visit downtown and take part in a variety of events and activities happening during Dig Downtown Week.

Highlights of the events during Dig Downtown Week:

  • Sunday, October 17th – Conquered –The Detroit Free Press Marathon Afterparty
  • Monday, October 18th – Auto-Tune karaoke at the Garden Bowl
  • Tuesday, October 19th – Drake at the Fox Theatre
  • Wednesday, October 20th – The Mikado at Michigan Opera Theatre
  • Thursday, October 21st – Social Distortion at The Fillmore
  • Friday, October 22nd – Of Mice and Men at WSU Hillberry Theatre
  • Saturday, October 23rd – Halloween Bar Tour with Inside Detroit
  • Sunday, October 24th – Howl-O-Ween Party at Canine to Five

Ann Lang, president & CEO of the Downtown Detroit Partnership, and other area leaders and ambassadors were present on Friday in Shed 3 at Eastern Market to kick off the event. “You don’t need a sporting event to come down, “ encouraged Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano.

They are also having a Dig Downtown Week Photo Contest and encourage you to take a photo of what you “dig” about downtown Detroit. Winners will have their photos featured on and will receive $100-$250 gift certificates.

Chris and I usually try to get to the Hillberry once a year. Maybe we will try to see Of Mice and Men. Love that play. Auto-tune Karaoke sounds pretty sweet too. Sorry I missed that!
