FESTIVAL | Joseph Avenue Festival 

Thanks to groups like the Joseph Avenue Business Association and the Joseph Avenue Arts and Culture Alliance, and several dedicated activists, Joseph Avenue has been undergoing a renaissance. With several new small businesses and plans to soon turn an old synagogue into a performing arts center, the future is bright. Around 300 people came out to the first festival in 2011, and last year, it attracted 5,000 attendees.

The Joseph Avenue Festival will have a barbecue that provides free food for all attendees, children-oriented activities, vendors, music and entertainment, and raffles for prizes like bicycles, Red Wings tickets, and zoo memberships. The event will take place on Saturday, July 29, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., on the corner of Joseph Avenue and Clifford Avenue. Admission is free.
