Nestled on the Detroit River in the heart of downtown Detroit is Detroit’s concert getaway. Formerly Chene Park, now renamed after the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre. Waterfront views make this a unique place to relax and take in the summer time fun along with music of all genres. The backdrop of Canada and boat’s of all sizes can be seen on the Detroit River along with the occasional freighter going by. As the sun goes down and the night just beginning the cool river breeze can be felt on a hot night. I hear for added cool down the park has a must get drink called The Blue Drink. To find out more about this drink simple attend a concert series at the park.
Over the years the park has had some big act’s come in and rock the river. As the 2019 summer concert series lineup gets inked, one act that is inked will be the biggest act to play Aretha Franklin Park to date and good bet for quite some time. The 6,000 seat park will be bouncing for sure as Snopp Dogg brinks his “Puff Puff Pass” Tour to Detroit on July 5th. This will sell out very quickly so get your tickets soon. Below will be a link to ticket info. Treat yourself to a jazzy nights series at the park which are always A plus material, come experience downtown little waterfront gem.
