When is this day celebrated? All Things Detroit Day takes place on the Sunday before Easter each year. In 2020, this falls on April 5.
What is this day? All Things Detroit is a day to celebrate the spirit of the small business owner. When Detroit’s shop small we support our neighbors and the growth of our city and state. When business owners take a chance on their own dreams, they rely on the support of others to grow and thrive. No other place supports its small businesses like Detroit. We’re a community of founders, makers and dreamers. Jennyfer Crawford took that sentiment and created a community from it. Her All Things Detroit events make it possible to celebrate the spirit of small business in Detroit – and this day will recognize those efforts.
By establishing All Things Detroit at the city’s historic Eastern Market, Founder Jennyfer Crawford supports the aspirations of hundreds of small business owners. More than an event, the spirit behind All Things Detroit deserves a day to call attention to these values and the community, 12,000 strong, that has grown around it. And the concept of supporting local business owners and small businesses is bolstered by All Things Detroit – enough so it should be celebrated with a day of its own.
Who created this day? This day was founded by Ask Jennyfer, LLC in 2020.
