A marketing program for Detroit is asking people to “Dig Downtown.” Organizers on Friday kicked off Dig Downtown Week with an event at Detroit’s Eastern Market. Activities run Saturday through Oct. 24.

Dig Downtown aims to showcase the unique assets and attractions of the city’s Downtown, Midtown, Corktown, Eastern Market and New Center areas. Highlights and other information are collected on the DigDowntown.com website.

Among the events listed as “digable” this weekend are the Detroit Free Press marathon, Godsmack at the Fox Theatre and the wine counselor at Eastern Market. 

Dig Downtown is a collaboration of area organizations. It’s funded by Business Leaders For Michigan, the Detroit Economic Growth Corp., the Hudson-Webber Foundation, The Kresge Foundation and the Downtown Detroit Partnership.
