Bedrock’s Holiday House at 1001 Woodward features local retailers from around the city.

With events like Winter Magic Weekends, visits from Santa and ice-skating in Campus Martius Park, festive food and beverage tastings, and unique, one-of-a-kind retail destinations, downtown Detroit is truly the place to be during the holiday season.

“It’s so much more than just a destination for a concert or game, downtown Detroit is a great place to go for an amazing day or night out that includes unique shopping, dining and entertainment options,” said Dan Mullen, EVP, Bedrock. “You can experience things here that you literally cannot find anywhere else.”

This year, Bedrock has collaborated with partners across the city to create the ultimate downtown holiday experience. Here are some of our favorite events and activities going on now throughout the rest of the season.
