Since 1982, Dally in the Alley has been a growing music festival in Detroit, and this year is no different. On Sept. 10, 2016, between Second Avenue and West Forest Avenue in what’s considered the Cass Corridor in Midtown, bring your kids down for the annual street festival.
There will be plenty of musical acts split among four different stages within the fest, so there will be performances for every music lover, as well as some entertaining performance acts, which have included painting and yoga in the past.
In addition to the music, check out the various vendors, selling all kinds of artwork and crafts.
As far as food, the vendors for this year include:
- Amicci’s Pizza
- Union Street
- Majestic Café
- Full Course Catering
- Detroit Shrimp and Fish
- Susan Sweet Tarts
- Russell Street Deli
- SnoBiz Detroit
There are a variety of foods available, so even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy something. Just walk around the fair and check them out.
For the little ones, there’s plenty of fun! Be sure to take them to the Kids Fair on Forest Avenue, just east of Second Avenue. It’s running noon-4 p.m. and will feature free activities like face painting, games, arts and crafts and more. New this year is the coloring station, which will have free handmade Dally coloring books.
And don’t forget to pick up your Dally in the Alley merchandise. Vendors will be selling T-shirts, posters, totes and more – plus there will be a limited number of Dally posters from past years.
The 39th annual fair is happening between West Forest, West Hancock and Second and Third avenues. Dally runs 11 a.m.-11 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10 and admission is free, so be sure to check this longtime staple and experience the culture and music for yourself. Note: Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016.
