Paczki Run

Sat., March 2, 10 a.m.

We're so lucky to have so many Polish people here in metro Detroit, who brought the beloved paczek and a decidedly sweet take on the "Fat Tuesday" celebration, the day of feast that comes before Lent. Before you indulge, you can hit Tour de Troit's annual Paczki Run 5K to do something that might help assuage some of the guilt from the following Tuesday's festivities. As usual, everyone who finishes the race gets a paczek and a beer — you deserve it. free

Paczki Day

Tue., March 5, 10 a.m.

This is it — the big day. Across metro Detroit, you'll be able to find plenty of places hawking those fattening paczki, but Small's Bar in Hamtramck is ground zero for the celebration. The celebration includes the booze-infused "paczki bomb," Polish food, and music from acts like the Polka Floyd Show (Pink Floyd meets polka), Eastside Elvis & the Motor City Mafia, and Party Zeppelin, a Led Zeppelin, Heart, and Blondie tribute. free

Hamtramck Music Festival

Thu., March 7, Fri., March 8 and Sat., March 9

This three-day festival packs the best local bands into a walkable footprint of Hamtramck's bars. Plus, it's for a good cause; festival proceeds go to Ben's Encore, a nonprofit that provides instruments, music lessons, and scholarships to inspired young musicians and underserved school music programs.
