June Pop-Up at Dequindre Cut Freight Yard


  • Dequindre Cut Freight Yard 1905 Alfred Street Detroit, MI, 48207 United States (map)

The Dequindre Cut Freight Yard will be the go to destination for outdoor libations and merriment this summer! Head to the Dequindre Cut for this  retail, entertainment and gathering space built from nine repurposed shipping containers. 

Freight Yard features a beer and wine garden, entertainment, food trucks headed up by the folks from Brut Detroit and Yum Village and a Detroit-based vendor market curated by Build Institute.

The Freight Yard features nine shipping containers that are installed in a pattern designed to be visually stimulating, yet functional as well.  The “Hub” is the centerpiece of the installation and features five shipping containers stacked on top of each other to house a DJ booth and retail space.  Interesting lighting treatments, creative site furnishings and the colorful work of local artists combine to create a fun, festive environment.

Freight Yard is located on the Dequindre Cut between Wilkins and Division street with the closest entrance located at Wilkins Street. Parking is available in the Eastern Market District.

make.do.studio IS SO STOKED to be a part of this! I will be popped up in the market June 9/10 and in the Pavilion July 21/22 and August 18/19. The market is open from 11-3pm on Saturdays and 12-4 Sundays.
