Fun Events for Teens in Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor

Find local activities for teenagers that they'll enjoy. Browse our roundup of things for teens to do, Detroit events for teens and more.

What happens when teens get bored? Well, let’s just say it’s better if they have parent-approved recreational activities to keep them and their friends busy instead of the alternatives.

To put your mind at ease – and to help your kid find fun things to do for teens that aren’t totally lame – we’ve rounded up some great local events for teens. Activities and things for teens to do are happening all across southeast Michigan.

Interested in adding an upcoming teen-centric Detroit event to this roundup – or to our events calendar? We’d love to know! Just submit event details there, and we’ll see that it’s added to this list, as well.

Just a word of advice: Some events may require pre-registration. Click on the calendar listing for the event and get details on pre-registering and how to contact the organizer for more details.
