#BeingApartTogether

Event Type : Concerts

This year, our community has embraced parks in ways that we have never seen before; over the last few months the number of visitors along the Detroit Riverfront and Dequindre Cut has well exceeded previous years.  This rise in use of our public spaces has meant an increase in security and cleaning to ensure our spaces remain clean, safe, and beautiful—making our work and your support more essential than ever. 

Though we wish we could be together in person this year at our annual fundraising events, we invite you instead to show your support for the Detroit Riverfront by joining us for #BeingApartTogether—a new physically-distant, socially-connected fundraiser.

This fundraiser is a celebration of the important role parks play in our lives, designed to provide new and special ways our community can experience our riverfront, all while #BeingApartTogether. Supporters will receive a package curated in partnership with Detroit's own City Bird, filled with limited edition riverfront items, locally-sourced gifts, and unique activities for outdoor fun. 

Thanks to our fundraiser supporters, we will be broadcasting a special night of performances by local artists along the Detroit Riverfront on October 16th at 6pm, including In Transit, Al Bettis, Juuni, and New World Soul.  The whole community will be able to enjoy the serenity of the river set to the perfect soundtrack of Detroit talent—all designed to bring the riverfront safely to our homes.

Whether in your backyard or your favorite riverfront park, we invite you to support our essential work by #BeingApartTogether this fall!
