This Weekend: DIY Street Fair + the Funky Ferndale Art Fair

This weekend, Downtown Ferndale will be overtaken with art, music, food, and the DIY spirit. Two yearly festivals will close down 9 Mile for the weekend to celebrate maker culture and community.

DIY Street Fair will take over the East side of 9 Mile this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The three-day festival features over 150 makers, 15 bands (including national acts), and a variety of food and drinks.  This year's musical acts include Flobots, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Haley Heyndrickx, and the Passalacqua reunion that we have been dreaming of. There is even a cool yoga session you can be a part of!

The West side of 9 Mile will have more of a fine art vibe. Think investment pieces that you hang in the living room or something hand blown that took years to learn how to craft. There are around 100 artists and 30 writers/authors that are featured on this side of the city. The FFAF will also be open all three days!

Both festivals are free to attend all weekend. Parking can be hard to find, but if you are willing to pay, Credit Union One and The dot are the easiest places to park. There will be food trucks at both events, but all of Downtown Ferndale's restaurants will be open and happy to serve you if you want to get out of the sun and off your feet for a little bit.

You can learn more about DIY here.

This Thursday: Eastern Market After Dark

This Thursday, the streets of Eastern Market will come alive with art, interactive experiences, installations, music, and community. Eastern Market After Dark is one of our favorite yearly events! It's always interesting, always different, and entirely free to attend.

Over 40 galleries and 4 different sheds will be active for this year's event. There is generally a mixture of food trucks, places to get drinks, and local makers throughout the event, but this is mostly about seeing and experiencing art and artists.

Participating in the greater market activities for the evening are:

Bea's Squeeze
Detroit City Distillery
Detroit Hustle Harder
Eastern Market Brewing Company
ESP Detroit
Henry The Hatter
Keep Growing Detroit
Motown Mopeds
OmniCorp Detroit
Savvy Chic Trends
Well Done Goods
...and more

You do not need a ticket to attend EMAD and you can generally park for free somewhere in the area. It might take a while to find a spot and you might have to do some walking, so rethink those heels so that you can have fun and make it around all the different installations. The fun starts at 6 p.m. and ends around 11 p.m. You can learn more about the event here.
