On Saturday, August 28 -- 1:00-7:00 pm, Come Hear Belle Isle is an event for young adults (targeting ages 18-34) who live in Detroit and will be the next generation of people who live and settle in the city, but all ages are welcome to attend and get involved.
The goal is to get people to come out and discover what Belle Isle, and Detroit as a whole, has to offer, while raising money for the preservation of Belle Isle. We will have nonprofits from all over the city come out and showcase ways to get involved in the community. Each organization will have space at a table at the event. The event will have a music component with several bands playing to provide a festival feel. Bands donating entertainment to the event include The Sights, Champions of Breakfast, The High Strung, Chris Bathgate, Loune, The Maunder Minimum, Doop and the Inside Outlaws, Copper Thieves and more. This is a FREE event, with a suggested donation.
Proceeds will go back to the preservation of Belle Isle through our partnership with The Friends of Belle Isle, a register non-profit.
