Ninth Annual River Days Festival Planned for June


DETROIT — The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy will host its ninth annual River Days Festival on June 19-21.

“River Days is the unofficial kick-off to summer for Detroit,” says Mark Wallace, president and CEO of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. “This year’s River Days will feature the return of many of our most popular activities and attractions, as well as some new surprises that we are sure visitors will love.”

The three-day event celebrating Detroit’s river, history, and culture has nearly a mile of family-friendly maritime activities, live music, and food, stretching from the General Motors Renaissance Center to Rivard Plaza and the William G. Milliken State Park.

The conservancy and its partners will announce more information on the festival’s concert lineups and activities in the upcoming months. For updates, visit
