Kick-off summer in style at the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy’s 9th annual Shimmer on the River, an exclusive preview to Detroit River Days. This year West Grand Boulevard meets West Riverfront Park as we celebrate 60 years of the Motor City’s signature sound. On June 20th, we will welcome Motown legends The Four Tops to the stage for an unforgettable live performance at West Riverfront Park, and will treat our guests to unlimited food at the Food Truck Rally, activities, refreshments, and unlimited access to the Adventure Park filled with games and rides for our younger guests. We’ll close out the evening with Shimmer Late Night, featuring Live Piano Karaoke provided by Detroit’s soon-to-be-opened Sid Gold’s Request Room.

This year, we are proud to recognize Nettie Seabrooks’ extraordinary commitment to the revitalization of the Detroit Riverfront with the Shimmer Award. Join us at the VIP Reception as we raise a glass to her unwavering support to our organization and toast the beginning of another great summer on the riverfront.
