BeerFest, Bonfires, and 8 More Things to Do in Detroit This Week



It's the third week in September and don't let the Midwest weather fool you; Fall is here. Autumn's arrival brings the promise of piles of fallen leaves, all of the spookiness of Halloween, and pumpkin-spice everything. In case none of those sound appealing to you, don't worry--you came to the right place.


Below you can find a list of ten events going on in Detroit this week. If you plan on sliding to any of these, please comment below! I’d love to talk more about them with you.
