Hamtramck Labor Day Festival
Jos. Campau & Caniff
Aug 31, 2019 - Sep 03, 2019
Hamtramck has always been known for packing a lot of fun into a small area, and that's exactly what happens at their annual Labor Day Festival. The main thoroughfare of Joseph Campau (beginning at Caniff Street) is blocked off for a weekend of carnival rides, a Polish Day Parade, food tents, vendor tables and two stages of live music. Park your bike at Wheelhouse Detroit's complimentary bike valet and enjoy an assortment of crowd-pleasing activities for adults and kids of all ages.
$5.00 per car parking will be available in the City lot at Mitchell & Caniff St.
Polish Day Parade
It wouldn’t be the Labor Day Festival without the Polish Day Parade, and this year is no exception. A variety of Polish groups participate, as well a number of dance troupes, community organizations and, yes, politicians.

For nearly 40 years, the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation has celebrated Detroit’s rich history of jazz music by providing year-round concerts and educational programming, and of course, organizing the world’s largest free jazz festival over Labor Day weekend.
With the support of corporate sponsors, philanthropic organizations, individual donors and volunteers, the Detroit Jazz Festival is free to music fans looking to revel in the artistry and improvisation of jazz legends, rising stars, legacy and homecoming artists. Each year’s lineup of more than 60 performances spanning multiple stages, as well as spontaneous late-night jam sessions, offers something for everyone.
Our year-round educational programming creates one-of-a-kind opportunities for regional students and aspiring musicians to help them achieve artistic excellence, while the concerts celebrate the works of students and mentors, in addition to local and national artists.

As always, the Festival aims to provide a fun and lively, but also very safe environment for Festival-goers, artists and staff, while also remaining respectful to the needs of the business district, residents and others passing through the city.
