2018 Summer Festivals In + Around Detroit

It’s hard to believe that summer festivals are well underway ! I get excited just thinking about elephant ears and snow cones… We all know as parents that’s the one thing we look forward to unless you enjoy the rides {I’m a scaredy-cat when it comes to those things}! There is absolutely nothing like the community feel you get from attending a summer festival. Some of these events have parades, some will have fireworks, some have live bands and some will have road races… they are all unique in their own way! If we missed something please let us know by commenting below. Our city is AMAZING and offers so much! Here’s to a fun-filled summer in the D!
