CityFest (aka TasteFest)

Don’t forget that CityFest (previously known as TasteFest) starts tomorrow!

Comerica CityFest is a five-day outdoor food and culture rich entertainment street festival in Detroit’s historic New Center over each Fourth of July weekend. The event exemplifies city life, (what it is and what it could be), in one of Detroit’s fastest growing 24-hour districts.

A diverse and family friendly crowd looks forward each year to our free national and local talent on four stages, over 40 Michigan restaurants selling “tastes” of their specialties, free stage shows, activities for children, and a marketplace of unique Detroit products and memorabilia. Comerica CityFest is free and open to the public.

The festival is supported by many of Detroit’s top radio and television stations, as well as the local print media. Over 500,000 people attend our festival each year from throughout southeastern Michigan and Ontario.

Not only is it good fun, it’s good for the sponsoring neighborhood of New Center as well as the city as a whole. Be sure to support local businesses whenever possible.

Fans of techno be sure to check out the music at the Pure Detroit Stage. Starting tomorrow is:
