Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Labor day weekend has passed, the kids are back to school and fall weather is in the air. It’s (almost) autumn in Detroit. To me that means football games, cider mills and the leaves changing colors. Oh, and sweatshirt weather—I love my hoodies.


We have plenty of beautiful days ahead of us—make sure to enjoy every minute.

Weekend Roundup

1. Dally in the Alley - The annual eclectic festival celebrates life in the Cass Corridor. Beer, music and art—what more can you ask for? September 10th.

2. Arts & Apples Festival - Bring on the fall weather! Fine art, live entertainment, kids zones, plenty of food and apples. September 9—11th.

3. Burton Theater presents Cinema BBQ VI - Two "trashy" movies—Rock 'n Roll High School and Pink Flamingos, outside on a big screen. Food from Porktown Sausage and jams fro DJ Marianna V. September 10th.

4. Plymouth Fall Festival - What started in 1956 as a family picnic sponsored by the Rotary Club has now blossomed into a large festival featuring entertainment, a craft show, a car show, spaghetti dinner, pancake breakfast, bingo and more. September 9—11th.

Dally in the Alley!! I haven't been able to go in the last couple of years and am planning on making it there this Saturday.
I thought the Burton closed and I was sad because I never got there...was I misinformed?

Thanks Bree & Lorna! How did I forget to add Thunderdrome?

You're correct—the Burton lost their space. They have been sporadically doing things elsewhere, though.
