Concert of Colors in Detroit

Celebrate the diversity of Detroit this year in Midtown July 5 and 10-13, 2014 with musical performances and fun for all ages.

There are lots of things that Detroit is known for but a lack of diversity isn't one of them. This year, bring the whole family on down to midtown to celebrate diversity at the 22nd annual Concert of Colors, July 5, 10-13, 2014 for five days of cultural education and family fun.

The Concert of Colors started in 1993 as a one-day event. It is produced by the Arab American National Museum and, in recent years, has drawn in around 80,000 music lovers.

This year, concertgoers will enjoy five days of music from artists of varying genres from all over the world. Each will bring a unique sound and flavor to the stage and will give the audience a taste of another culture. This year's line-up includes Chicago AfroBeat Project, PD9 Sun Ra Centennial Band, PanaMO, Third Coast Kings, Annamaria Austin and many more!

Food and drink will be on sale at all venues involved and unique merchandise vendors will be open throughout the event.

And for kids, the Arts & Scraps Scrapmobile will park at the Fisher Music Center July 12-13 for some crafting fun.

The concert is free and open to the public. Times are as follows:

  • Saturday, July 5: 7-11 p.m.
