Each year on Memorial Day weekend, thousands of people from across the globe gather in the birthplace of Techno to celebrate the heritage of Detroit and its musical influence over countless generations, new and old. Movement Music Festival is one of the longest-running dance music events in the world, committed to showcasing authentic electronic music and providing an experience unlike any other. The festival takes place in Hart Plaza – Detroit’s legendary riverfront destination.
During Founder’s Day, attendees will enjoy live musical performances, a DJ, food trucks with food for purchase, and other family-friendly Motown-themed activities, including face painting, instrument exploration with Access Music Academy, coloring, singing and instrument making. Henry Ford Health System will also be on-site to provide free health screenings. Video booths will be available for guests to share and record their own Motown stories as part of Motown Museum’s #MotownReflections campaign in honor of its new exhibit Reflections: My Motown Story. Select stories will be shared on social media, as well as used for research and potential future exhibitions.
Natural Hair Fest in Downtown Detroit is designed to promote a way of life that nurtures natural hair growth and teaches proper regimens for the care and maintenance of healthy, natural hair. We are equally concerned about beginning the process of healing and taking preventative measures to offset hair loss and disorders of the scalp that plague our communities in epidemic proportion. We summit to pin-point, intercept, negate and correct mis-education, mis-information, and bad habits that lead to challenges associated with managing coarse, curly, kinky, coily and multi-textured hair types.
Natural Hair Fest Detroit is a one-stop destination where Consumers will be able to meetup and make conscious, person to person connections with skilled, Instructors, business-minded Professionals, Freelancers and Students in attendance who specialize in natural hair care.
