Concert of Colors, Detroit

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 23rd annual Concert of Colors, July 4 and 9-12, 2015 – 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 Spam Allstars, Hassan Hakmoun, The Infatuations, Kate Monaghan, Pierre Anthony, Alyssa Simmons 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 the kids, crafts with Arts & Scraps will be offered from 1 until 7 p.m. July 11-12 on Parsons Street at the Max M. Fisher Music Center.

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

  • Saturday, July 4: 7-11 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 9: doors at 5:30 p.m.
