Midsummer Nights in Midtown began this past weekend and will continue through the month of June. This month-long series replaces the Detroit Festival of the Arts, a single weekend event.
From the April 24th press release:
“The University Cultural Center Association (UCCA) and Wayne State University are excited to announce a new series of summertime public performances, Midsummer Nights in Midtown, every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening in June. This special series will continue to provide outstanding arts and cultural programming for the metropolitan Detroit community, in lieu of the Detroit Festival of the Arts.
“Midsummer Nights in Midtown spotlights a different Midtown venue each evening of the series, presenting an admission-free performance by international, national and local guest artists ranging from acclaimed musicians to award-winning poets and authors, and large-puppet theater for children. In total there will be more than a dozen participating venues and over 25 performances amid the state’s premier arts and cultural institutions, neighborhood galleries, and entertainment facilities.”
