Bedrock’s Decked Out Detroit initiative is bringing back festive events and experiences to downtown Detroit. The Downtown Detroit Markets and Cadillac Lodge return to Cadillac Square on Nov. 9, and other activities and promotions will also be presented in the coming months.

More than 20 vendors will be participating in this year’s Downtown Detroit Markets. The Brave Wimp, Halie & Co, Two Stix 5 Stones, and Kids Like Mine are among the vendors featured in the pop-up shop experience.

Meanwhile, in the nearby Cadillac Lodge, visitors can enjoy family-friendly entertainment — including live music, crafts, and more — plus tasty treats such as walking tacos, Detroit-style chili, warm soft pretzels, cider, hot cocoa and more.

“The Downtown Detroit Markets and Cadillac Lodge have become beloved traditions for many local residents and families to visit during the holiday season,” Ivy Greaner, Bedrock Detroit’s Chief Operating Officer, said in a press release.

“Throughout the years, we have been fortunate to help foster the growth of a mix of local businesses at the Markets, and this makes the program truly special. There will be something for everyone to enjoy this season and we are ready for this next round of entrepreneurs to flourish.” 

Decked Out Detroit, which was launched five years ago to bring memorable experience to the city’s downtown area, will also present winter activities at the Monroe Street Midway, also starting Nov. 9. These activities include winter bumper cars, putt-putt, arcade games, and an 80-foot-long arctic slide.  

The Downtown Detroit Markets and Cadillac Lodge open on Nov. 9, 2023, and will remain open through Jan. 7, 2024.
