Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Before I tell you about all the fabulous events happening in and around Detroit this weekend I need to announce the winner of the pair of tickets to Drink Michigan's A Sip of Michigan event.

Congrats to Brianna (@reillybr)! She was lucky entry #22 and this is what she had to say about her favorite Michigan-based drinks, "I love Leelanau Cellars Winter White or Witches Brew. Yum! Also, Milkshake Stout from Rochester Mills."

Enjoy the party Brianna!

Weekend Roundup

1. Rockin' on the Riverfront - The 2011 free concert series kicks off with Three Dog Night. Bring a crowd because "One is the lonliest number that you'll ever do." July 8th

2. Festival Epicure - You'll have to cross the border to attend this festival of food, wine and music in Windsor. Just think of it as South Detroit. Don't forget you'll need an enhanced drivers license or passport. July 8—10.

3. Michigan Elvisfest 2011 - It's time to get "All Shook Up" in Depot Town! Billed as the best & longest tribute concert in North America, this festival has everything from impersonators to memorabilia to a gospel hour and more. July 8—9. (Warning: music auto-plays when you visit this site.)

4. Pride of Baltimore II - The topsail schooner sails into Detroit to dock for two days and will be open for public tours. Read more about the schooner over at The Night Train. July 7—8.

5. Plymouth Art in the Park - The second largest art fair in the state features over 400 artists from all over the country. The picture-perfect setting in downtown Plymouth is worth a visit in itself. July 8—10.

6. 31st Annual American Polish Festival - Celebrate Polish culture, food and entertainment. I'm particularly intriguied by the pierogi eating contest and the Polish Taco. Na zdrowie! July 8—10.

And if that's not enough...
