Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Over two years ago—when there were a bevy of summer festivals going on—I started the Weekend Roundup as a way to highlight all the fabulous things to do in Detroit. It wasn’t originally intended as an ongoing series and it didn’t even have an official name until its third installment.

Since then, I’ve published it every Thursday—week in and week out. My only regret is that I can’t do everything on the list!

Have fun and enjoy your weekend in Detroit!

Weekend Roundup

1. Buy Michigan Now Festival - Support Michigan-based businesses and local products while enjoying downtown Northville! Sidewalk sales, street vendors, live music and children's activities. August 5—7.

2. Ribs 'n' R&B Jazz Festival - The popular Hart Plaza festival features mouth watering barbecue and smooth jazz. August 5—7.

3. Motor City Shakedown 7 - The Rovers, a vintage scooter club, are throwing their annual rally. This is for both scooterists and non-scooterists! [Confession: I've wanted a scooter since I was a pre-teen. This dream has never been realized.] August 5—7.

4. Figment Detroit - This free, interactive art event aims to blur the line between the artists and art lovers. See art & Belle Isle in a whole new way! August 6th

5. Detroit City Futball League Finals: Copa II - They've been battling all summer and now it's time to crown a champion. In addition to the fabulous footy, there will be live entertainment. August 6th.

6. Animal House Party - Woof! Party like an animal at The Whitney while supporting the Michigan Humane Society. August 6th.

Bonus: Hot Glass + Cold Beer.
