Concert of Colors is back again!

Posted: 07/15/16

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.

With its rich 23-year history, the festival is one of the few free-admission music festivals remaining locally. The scheduled events will feature artists from all over the world. A few special acts include a forum on community, culture & race; spoken word performances; and a film feature in the Detroit Film Theater.

This event is produced by the Arab American National Museum along with its partners at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, ACCESS, Midtown Detroit INC. and the University of Michigan – Detroit Center.

This event is open to all ages. For a full schedule of events, visit concertofcolors.com, or for general information, call 313-582-2266.
