The 38th Annual Noel Night will take place on Saturday, December 4th from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in Midtown Detroit’s Cultural Center Area. Over 40 institutions, including Showtime Clothing, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Science Center, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Historical Museum, the Detroit Public Library, amongst many others, open their doors to the public free of charge during this Cultural Center-wide holiday “open house.” Activities include horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday shopping, family craft activities and performances by over 90 area music, theatre, and dance groups. The evening’s festivities culminate with a community sing-along on Woodward Avenue led by the Salvation Army Band — a long-standing Noel Night tradition.
