Monroe Street Midway Returns for Summer 2022

Bedrock Detroit and RollerCade welcome the family-friendly outdoor space back in 2022.

Are you looking for a fun way to enjoy some time outside with the kids this summer? Look no further than the Monroe Street Midway.

This outdoor space, which came about through a partnership between Bedrock Detroit and Detroit’s oldest Black-owned skating rink, RollerCade, is open to families May 27-Sept. 5, 2022.

Located in the heart of Detroit, on the former site of the Monroe Street Drive-In, near Campus Martius Park, the Monroe Street Midway promises oodles of family fun including:

  • Instagram-worthy art installations
  • Food trucks and outdoor dining offered by a variety of vendors
  • The Rocket Mortgage Sports Zone, which is perfect for pick-up basketball games, tennis, handball, lacrosse and more
  • A nine-hole putt-putt mini golf course, which is new in 2022
  • Live DJs and poetry performances
  • And, of course, the city’s only outdoor roller rink, Rollout Detroit

The Monroe Street Midway is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Admission to the Monroe Street Midway is free but it’s $13 to skate at Rollout Detroit. This price includes your skating session and skate rental. Free two-hour parking is also available at participating garages. Collect your parking validation at the skate rental booth.
