Campus Martius is one of our favorite places in the city all year round, and during the holiday season the park really ups its game. Showcase D’ Holidays is part of Quicken Loans’ Season of Winter Magic, which brings street performers, local bands, a full service bar (including local and national beers), and food sampling to the park on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the holiday season. Friday evenings also feature a hot chocolate cocktail bar and a sampling of small plates from Hudson Cafe. Saturdays feature “A Taste of the D,” which offers a rotating sample of small plates and sweets from Detroit restaurants (Small Plates, HopCat, Atwater in the Park, Bagger Dave’s, A Serendipity Cakery, Golden Fleece, and more) and comes with a commemorative holiday pint glass, and a personal holiday photo. This Friday there will be musical performances by the Native Howl and Stone Clover. Saturday Longneck Strangler and Orbitsuns will play.
