The holidays are coming, which means one thing: Detroit's beloved Noel Night is just around the corner.
Entering its 47th year, Noel Night — Detroit’s holiday tradition which serves as a neighborhood-wide open house celebration — returns Saturday, Dec. 7, when more than 50,000 visitors are expected to descend on Midtown for caroling, holiday fanfare, and ice sculptures, as well as to do some major damage to holiday wishlists.
Last year initiated a new tradition for Noel Night and its visitors — an afternoon and evening schedule. Once again, Noel Night will be split into afternoon and night hours, with businesses, venues, and cultural institutions within Midtown's museum district North of Warren Avenue participating from 1-7 p.m. Those South of Warren Avenue will be taking part in the festivities from 5-10 p.m.
An interactive map can be viewed here and a full schedule of events, performances, and activities can be found at NoelNight.org.
