Detroit Unchained — Events in March
Detroit is one of the largest cities in the United States, which means we as nearby residents have the opportunity to experience at any given time world class entertainment, restaurants, professional sports games, and more. The history of Detroit is filled with ups and downs, innovative thinkers and people who made things happen. People can say what they will about Detroit, but good or bad, Detroit is a fascinating city. Take time this March to try as many new things as possible – in venues located right here in your city.
Detroit Institute of Arts
The DIA is one of those unexpected beacons of beauty that can be found sprinkled around Detroit. Founded in 1885, the DIA has served the area as a center of culture for over a century. The collection it holds is among the top six in the United States, and the diversity of pieces in the collection is a defining characteristic of the DIA – American, European, Native American, Islamic and countless other nations are represented in the exhibits showcased within the 658,000 square feet of space that makes up the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Beginning March 15 is the much anticipated exhibit featuring work by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Because the pieces will be on display until July 12, 2015, you have plenty of time to see two of the most well-known artists of the century – but if you see the exhibit in March, you get the bonus of escaping the cold while taking in some culture.
Thumbs Up Detroit
Be a part of Detroit’s comeback at the first Thumbs Up conference and expo at the Cobo Center, which runs March 12-14, 2015. Showcasing all the best reasons to live, work, and believe in the idea that Detroit can once again become a great city, Thumbs Up Detroit features art exhibits, cooking demonstrations from some of the city’s best restaurants, live presentations, and more.
Monster Energy AMA Supercross
If an adrenaline rush is more your speed, head over to Ford Field on March 21, 2015 to see some of the best supercross riders in the nation compete for enviable titles and prizes. Supercross mixes dirt bikes, aerial tricks, and racing into a nail-biting, white knuckle experience.
With its many music venues and concert halls, Detroit is always bringing the world’s biggest acts to the area. In March alone you have the opportunity to see Meghan Trainor at St. Andrew’s Hall, Ariana Grande at Joe Louis Arena, Echosmith at The Shelter, and Drowning Pool at The Machine Shop. And these are just some of the well-known performers coming to town. There are always shows going on all over Detroit that feature talented acts – you just have to look for them.
Detroit offers an almost endless array of events to keep you busy all year. Make time this March to sample just a few of those opportunities – you might even enjoy yourself.
