Not many cities have a plethora of independent and alternative art forms that flood the streets of Detroit. Simply walking through Midtown can be like flipping through a fashion book or stumbling on a free jazz concert. The fest is a celebration of those people; you know, the artists and creators, the visionaries, and the people that keep Detroit just weird and wonderful enough to feel like home. This second annual Sidewalk Fest is coming back full-fledged with numerous performances from local bands, DJs, artists, dance troupes and more. Passalacqua, Detroit Party Marching Band and Tunde Olaniran are just some of the musical performers who'll be on hand while Pop-Up Shakespeare seems particularly intriguing. Sci-fi belly dance by Raks Geek and a 30-foot fiber art tunnel are other worthy attractions. This festival will be held outside of 17340 Lahser Road, nearby the Redford Theater.
