Celebrate the Season in Downtown Detroit!

Photo by Joseph Stevenson, JSFauxtaugraphy @Fauxtaugraphy   I’m not sure when your Holiday Season begins.

Posted on May 23rd, 2017 in Detroit, Detroit Events, Detroit Music
Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit has pretty much come to mean Movement Weekend. It’s kind of an odd mash-up, since Memorial Day evokes the past as we look back on those who gave their lives in service and Movement is all about progressive music and culture that looks forward.

While there are competing versions of its nascence, one story of how Labor Day came into being is that Matthew Maguire—a machinist and Secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in New Jersey—proposed the holiday in 1882 and that it was first celebrated at a picnic in 1882.
