Detroit is the place to be all year, especially throughout the winter season! From shopping, dining and exploring, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy.

The Downtown Detroit Markets bring more than 35 local entrepreneurs to pop-up shops in glass huts in Cadillac Square and Capitol Park. Bedrock and the Quicken Loans Community Fund created the Downtown Detroit Markets and other downtown programs as part of the ongoing commitment to drive entrepreneurship and increase diverse retail, food, beverage and art-focused offerings within the city.

The Markets will remain open through mid-February so Quicken Loans Winter Blast Weekend attendees have the opportunity to experience all that the pop-up small businesses firsthand.

Quicken Loans Winter Blast Weekends are all new this year in downtown Detroit! The festival, which traditionally lasts one weekend, has transformed into a winter-themed wonderland that now spans four weekends with different events each weekend. Activities include ice skating, skiing, zip lining, a polar plunge, live music performances and so much more. The best part is that all of the events are free!

Experience the magic for yourself and plan a day for your friends and family to come check out all that downtown Detroit has to offer!

Events run the weekends of Jan. 19-21, Jan. 25-27, Feb. 8-10 and Feb. 15-17. For more information on the Downtown Detroit Markets, visit XODetroit.com. For hours and more information about the Quicken Loans Winter Blast Weekends, visit winterblast.com.
