Beyond Downtown – Livernois Walking Tour
December 14 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a walking tour of Livernois, The Avenue of Fashion! Located in Northwest Detroit, Livernois has long been the heart of the apparel industry in Detroit. Retailers, wholesale buyers, designers, stylists, students, shoppers, and residents all converge on this historic avenue to this day. In the last few years, Livernois has seen renewed and innovative efforts to strengthen it’s businesses, accessibility, and presence as a hub for the surrounding Northwest neighborhoods: Sherwood Forest, University District, Green Acres, Palmer Woods, and Bagley.
We will visit shops that are new to the Avenue within the last few years, as well as the older businesses that have been anchors in the community for decades. We will also learn about community efforts in place to make the area a better place to live, work, and shop.
Tour begins promptly at 1:00pm. Please allow yourself a sufficient amount of time to find parking and arrive at the location.
We will stop frequently, but please bring comfortable shoes for walking!
