Dally in the Alley in Cass Corridor in Detroit

Visit Midtown on Saturday Sept. 7, 2013 to revel in the annual fun of this neighborhood fest, including lots of bands, a marketplace, food and more

For 37 years now years, Cass Corridor has been celebrating its community members by throwing a bash for fun times – and promoting and improving the neighborhood. This year, the Dally in the Alley Street Fair returns to Midtown in Detroit with plenty of goodies packed into one day: Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 (rain date is Sunday, Sept. 8).

Traditionally held the Saturday after Labor Day, this all-day, cozy-yet-bustling event (it runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.) is touted as a "celebration of life." Thousands of folks fill in the cracks that make up the corridor to enjoy local musicians, artists, restaurants and vendors hawking all sorts of goods.

Come early to experience the Dally Kids Fair with the wee ones. Here, children can participate in crafts, get their faces painted and play games with others their age. PuppetART, Detroit's beloved puppet theater, lends its expert tips during a puppet-making workshop. Afterwards, kids can show off their creations in a big ol' puppet parade!

The 2013 entertainment packs up five outdoor stages, with Detroit-based hip-hop/rap act Invincible headlining the Forest Stage. With over 30 bands in store, you're sure to hear tunes that catch your ear.

There's lots of fantastic food in store, too, from startup Funnomenon, a vegan and vegetarian street food concept, to delicious fare from established eateries in the area (you might even spot a food truck or few!).

Sponsored by the North Cass Community Union, the dally benefits North Cass projects to improve the lives of those who live and work in the area.

It all goes down around Hancock Street, Forest and Second avenues and the alleyways in between. To find out a bit more about the 2013 Dally in the Alley in Cass Corridor in Detroit, check out the Metro Parent listing.
