Akropolis is giving 2 outdoor pop-up performances in large-scale public spaces during our 2019 festival. In the past, our pop-up performances have taken place at outdoor gathering spots, grocery stores, coffee shops, malls, and more. This year, our first free pop up concert will happen at the iconic Beacon Park on Grand River Ave. in downtown Detroit.
About Beacon Park
On July 20, 2017, DTE Energy opened a new and exciting park for Detroiters and visitors to enjoy at the corner of Grand River and First Ave. Beacon Park spans 1.2 acres of downtown Detroit and features stunning light installations, a circular, open lawn space, a contemporary two-story restaurant with rooftop dining and year-round activities and entertainment. This park hosts a full program of daily organized activities and entertainment such as musical performances, food trucks, lunch and after-work parties, concerts, lighting spectacles, children’s events, farmer’s markets, fitness and exercise, micro league sports and games, and other special events. DTE Energy converted an empty triangle of land, adjacent to our downtown headquarters, into a beautiful green park and a magnet for the community and new development. Within five to ten minutes walking distance to major downtown Detroit attractions, including Woodward’s entertainment corridor and central business district, the park is a place for friends and family to gather on workdays, and on weekends.
