Shimmer on the River

Shimmer on the River, the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy’s largest annual fundraiser, is returning and will transform the Detroit Riverfront into a family fun fair and carnival, featuring a private concert by “The World’s Greatest Party Band,” the B-52s. Presented by Strategic Staffing Solutions, the fundraiser will help kick-off the whole GM River Days weekend of fun on the Detroit Riverfront. Join us in an unforgettable evening of music, performance art, gourmet bites, traditional festival food, and free carnival rides. All of the proceeds from Shimmer will support the Conservancy’s continued transformation of Detroit’s Riverfront.
