Looking for an exciting event this weekend in Midtown? The Concert of Colors begins July 14th and runs until July 17th from 12-7 pm in Midtown Detroit at 3939 Woodward Ave. The event unites metro Detroit’s diverse communities and ethnic groups by presenting musical acts from around the world. The Concert of Colors is Detroit’s free annual diversity – themed music festival represented by the people of Southeast Michigan and the music of Detroit. It was established by Ismael Ahmed in 1993 as a one-day event.

A few special acts include a forum on community, culture & race; spoken word performances; and a film feature in the Detroit Film Theater.
