Sample local brews and delicious eats in Eastern Market. 

Detroit is ripe with historic and award-winning breweries. The easiest way to try the best beer Michigan offers is to attend the Detroit Fall Beer Festival in Eastern Market on Saturday, October 22nd. 

We suggest parking in our secure garage at 150 Michigan Avenue and taking a short ride on the #40 bus to the heart of Eastern Market to avoid crowded street parking.

Only enter if you’re brave!

Savor the changing colors of the season.
