House of Vans Takes over Jefferson School in Detroit this January

This week, House of Vans announced that they are coming to Detroit in 2019! The famous footwear and clothing brand will be taking over the historic Jefferson School in Detroit for one of their House of Vans pop-ups. Events like these have been held in cities across the world, like Paris, Montreal, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Mexico City, along with permanent House of Vans locations in Chicago and London. This Detroit pop-up will be largest House of Vans experience to date.

The event is happening Thursday thru Sunday, January 24th to 27th, 2019. It will feature live music, a street market, art, workshops, and of course, skateboarding. House of Vans has teamed up with Community Push to transform the gymnasium into an indoor skate park. There will be open skate sessions throughout the weekend, as well as a girls skate clinic and board building. Then, they have also teamed up with local companies like Third Man Records, Genusee, SMPLFD and B_KS@ for an awesome street market featuring a record fair, screen printing and more. Ghostly International will be there too, to celebrate their 20th anniversary!

And while all of that is amazing, the thing that people in Detroit always get the most excited about, is the music. House of Vans has an awesome lineup of music planned for the weekend, with Thundercat, Protomartyr and Amber Mark on Thursday. The rest of the weekend includes Danny Brown, Joyce Manor, Kelsey Lu, Sheefy McFly and more! Plus, that "more" list ins't even complete yet! House of Vans is still taking applications from Detroit area talent to get in on the action with their SESSIONS series. Musicians interested in playing SESSIONS at House of Vans Detroit can email music to
