FESTIVAL INFO

A STREET FESTIVAL FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS


Sidewalk Festival is back for its 5th annual celebration of Detroit landscape and culture through performance and interactive art, featuring over 50 original works of dance, theater, music, visual art and interactive art. We shy away from traditional stages – most performances take place in alleys, sidewalks, parking lots, the roofless warehouses of Artist Village and the street itself.

Our theme this year is RADICAL MOMENT(UM). Over the course of 2 days, artists will explore the concept of radical moments and movements through innovative works of dance, theatre, music and visual art.
