The sixth annual Detroit Design Festival is being held this week and Chrysler has sponsored one of the festival’s main events called ‘Eastern Market After Dark’.
The Detroit design festival this year is especially important for the city as it’s the first design festival to be held after Detroit became first and only U.S. city to receive the UNESCO City of Design designation in December.
Eastern Market After Dark, first held in 2012, pushes an emphasis on sharing the talents of Detroit area artists, designers, businesses and other creators. It will span Eastern Market’s Shed 2, 3, 4 and 5 event halls and will consists of Chrysler and other brand activations, an architecture display, a marketplace and food trucks and the Detroit Design Ball.
The 2016 Eastern Market After Dark will kick off tonight at 7:00 p.m. in Detroit. Visit the event’s Facebook page for additional information.
