About downtown days
Downtown Days was started in 2016 and since then has become our organization’s signature summer event. In 2019 Downtown Days will be held Friday, August 9, and Saturday, August 10, at Veteran’s Plaza (34841 Veterans Plaza, Wayne, MI) in the heart of downtown Wayne.
This year’s event is especially significant to the City of Wayne as 2019 marks our sesquicentennial anniversary. To help celebrate this important milestone, Downtown Days will feature a 150th Birthday Celebration hosted by Mayor John Rhaesa. Downtown Days 2019 will feature an exciting lineup of family-friendly live music entertainment, food vendors, the flea market/community garage sale, and a number of art-focused programs, including our Second Annual Art-O-Motive car hood contest, the Third Annual Window on Wayne photography contest, and the Detroit Institute of Art’s Drop-In workshop. We estimate that Downtown Days will draw 4,000-5,000 festivalgoers from Wayne and its surrounding communities.
