DETROIT RIVER DAYS FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR FIFTH YEAR ON
DETROIT’S INTERNATIONAL RIVERFRONT JUNE 24-26, 2011
Detroit Riverfront Conservancy continues one-of-a-kind festival to spotlight Riverfront transformation
DETROIT (1 March, 2011) – Marking its fifth anniversary, the Detroit River Days festival will return toDetroit’s international and historical riverfront fromJune 24-26, 2011. The three-day festival, presented by the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, features diverse programming and activities all celebrating Detroit’s maritime, ecological and culinary culture, as well as live concerts with performances by local, national and international musicians.
“River Days continues to be a huge draw for our community and visitors of all ages to take in both the beauty of this attraction while enjoying a one-of-a-kind festival on the water,” said Faye Alexander Nelson, President & CEO, Detroit RiverFront Conservancy. “As always, the Conservancy is looking forward to adding even more fun and unique ways to celebrateDetroit’s river, history and culture with our festival programming this year.”
The Conservancy, a non-profit organization, began the festival in 2007 to celebrate its completion of more than two and a half miles of transformed Riverfront putting it in the local and national spotlight. Since that time, more than three miles of Riverfront and its associated greenways are now open and accessible to the public, including the Dequindre Cut Greenway andWilliam G. Milliken State Park,Michigan’s first urban state park.
More information on the festival’s concert line-ups and new and returning activities celebrating Detroit’s river, history and culture will be announced by the Conservancy in the coming months. The public can also find updates on the festival website, www.DetroitRiverDays.com and through the Conservancy’s “Detroit Riverfront” Facebook and Twitter fan pages.

There are also a number of options for corporations and organizations to gain exposure and recognition as a River Days sponsor.
