Detroit Month of Design
The month of September; Various venues around metro Detroit; detroitmonthofdesign.com; Many events are free and open to the public.

In 2015, Detroit earned a coveted designation as a "City of Design" from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization — making it the first such city in the United States to get the distinction. To celebrate, a number of design-related events have united under the banner of the Detroit Month of Design. Highlights include Eastern Market After Dark (Sept. 20), Light Up Livernois (Sept. 29), "Shape: Defining Furniture In Michigan's Design Legacy" at Shinola (Sept. 7), Focus: On Detroit Photography Festival in Detroit's Cool Cities Park (Sept. 15). and the Junior League of Detroit's Designer Showhouse at the historic Charles T. Fisher Mansion (Sept. 15-Oct. 7).
