Art and Music Combine Saturday at Detroit's Annual Noel Night


Detroit's Cultural Center in Midtown will be hopping Saturday night for the 45th annual Noel Night.

It's an entertaining night that shows what an urban area like that should look like all the time on a Saturday night. Perhaps one day.

In the meantime, enjoy the 5-10 p.m. event Here's a description from the website:

Over 100 participating venues, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Michigan Science Center, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Historical Museum, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Detroit Public Library, will open their doors to the public free of charge during this Cultural Center-wide holiday open house. Activities include horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday shopping, family craft activities and performances by over 200 area music, theatre, and dance groups, and other special performances.

Noel Night headlining performers include:  Afro Blue, Cantus, Sidewalk Chalk, The Cactus Blossoms, Les Nubians, Etienne Charles’ Creole Christmas, The Main Squeeze, The Tartan Terrors, the Rhythm Society Orchestra with Paul King, and Thornetta Davis.

The location for the community sing-along led by the Salvation Army has changed. It will now take place on Wayne State University's campus at the southwest corner of Woodward and Warren Avenues.

Noel Night is produced by Midtown Detroit, Inc., a nonprofit community development organization that supports economic growth.
