With the arrival of September, we are thinking about all of the places we would love to visit this fall. Michigan keeps coming up as a favorite fall destination, whether you’re checking out the arts and culture of Detroit, sampling homemade cider at one of the cider mills outside the city, or hitting a stadium for a football game. Luckily, there are plenty of destinations to #StaySonesta in Michigan, especially in the Detroit area, where there is so much to see and do in the coming months, including the following events.
Cityfest at The Whitney – Indulge in a dining experience or a tour of this majestic mansion, a Detroit landmark known for its upscale dining and events. Cityfest, which takes place from September 10-19, is a celebration of spirited dining and includes a variety of food, wine, and cocktail experiences.
Handcrafters Fall Fair – This fall favorite features food, art, jewelry, decor, and more. If you love autumn, you will want to add this event to your Detroit area itinerary.
Detroit Month of Design – Every September, partners across Detroit—from emerging studios to established companies and educational institutions—come together to show off their latest works and ideas. You’ll find art and design in every part of Detroit; this is just part of what makes Detroit a UNESCO City of Design.
