Is your child into Barbies or are American Girl Dolls more their thing? If your kid won’t leave the house without his or her favorite doll, bring them down to Detroit for a day of doll-themed fun at the 2019 Detroit Doll Show.

This eighth annual black doll show is themed to “Whimsical” and kicks off on Saturday Nov. 9, 2019, with a wide variety of fun that kids can enjoy with their dolls.

Get there early and take your doll on a shopping spree in the show’s vendor area. Here, you will find doll clothing, accessories and, of course, actual dolls on display and for sale.

After you purchase your haul, sit in on the show’s panel discussions or workshops. They bring authors, journalists, activists, doll makers and other inspirational doll enthusiasts together to discuss topics surrounding dolls and make items kids can use when playing with their dolls.

In addition, kids can participate in the doll look-a-like contest or doll-themed crafts – including a make-and-take doll.

The eighth annual Detroit Doll Show happens at the Northwest Activities Center in Detroit on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

General admission is $5. Parking is free.
