Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

The Detroit Tigers are on a dramatic roll with a 12 game winning streak, bringing the magic number (to clinch the division) down to 2. The Detroit Lions won their season opener. That hasn’t happened since 2007 so we have a lot of hope going into the home opener at Ford Field this Sunday.

Good luck to all our Detroit sports teams! Have a great weekend.

Weekend Roundup

1. DIY Street Fair - This is one of my favorite fests of the year. An outdoor marketplace with over 100 crafty vendors, 35 Michigan craft beer selections, live music and food! September 16—18.

2. Funky Ferndale Art Fair - Billed as "twice as funky as the average fine art show," it promises a bit more edge and over 120 artists. September 16—18.

3. PARK(ing) Day Detroit (Facebook link) - This is a worldwide event that transforms boring, metered parking spaces into temporary parks. September 16th.

4. Northville Victorian Festival - Step back in time and take part in the beautiful Victorian era complete with costumes, storytellers and entertainment. September 16—18.

5. Michigan Renaissance Faire - If the Victorian era isn't your thing, how about midievil times? Enjoy jousting, meat on a stick and entertainment. Weekends through October 2nd.

Bonus: Campus Martius Wedding Reception Festival – Jeanette Pierce, Detroit’s biggest ambassador and one of the founders of Inside Detroit, is getting married this weekend. First off, congrats Jeanette and Richard—we wish you all the best! Being Jeanette, she decided that her reception would celebrate the city she loves and have an open festival at Campus Martius. Music featuring Thornetta Davis and The Sights. Cash bar.
