Eastern Market After Dark 2017

Eastern Market After Dark is returning to the Eastern Market this Thursday, September 28th. The one night only event gives attendees the opportunity to visit over 30 galleries that are within walking distance of each other. It also provides the opportunity to enjoy interactive experiences with a variety of Detroit's up and coming artists. Last year we watched leather couches being live painted and saw a fashion show featuring women walking in dresses that were made of various types of paper. Everywhere we turned there was something new and interesting to look at. It was a truly creative, fun and interactive look at the growing Detroit art scene.

This year's event will feature interactive installments inside Eastern Market sheds 2, 3, 4 and 5. Thirty of the city's local galleries are also open for the event. It is also the perfect chance for you to check out all of the new murals that were revealed during Murals in the Market last week. There will be a variety of food trucks to grab a bite during the event and there are bars to grab drinks. Some of the city's cool restaurants and distilleries are also open if you want to pop in while you're running around.

Eastern Market After Dark runs from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Thursday and it is free for all who are interested to attend, even kids!
