Noel Night Returns Saturday With Free Museum Admissions
DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit nightlife will be full of joy and good cheer.
The 40th annual Noel Night takes place Saturday, Dec. 1, at Detroit’s University-Cultural Center.
Marketing coordinator Ann Marie Borucki said that this year, Noel Night will feature free admission to the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and more than 60 venues.
“Noel Night is now celebrating its 40th anniversary, it’s hard to believe, and the event continues to get bigger and bigger each year showing just how much people want to participate in it and just how successful it is with drawing people from all around Metro Detroit,” Borucki said. “Also participating this year will be the Detroit Symphony Orchestra hosting two free performances featuring the en Trio. That is in actually the Music Box at the Max.”
It’s also your chance once again visit the Detroit Science Center, which will re-open after being shut down for more than a year.
“It’s a great opportunity for the public to come on down and visit one of the amazing hands on science museum and kind of get a sneak peek because obviously, we’re working towards getting the building open permanently,” said Fred Huebener of the Science Center. ”But this is a great opportunity for people to come down and not only see the building but hear some amazing family friendly entertainment on an amazing night here in Midtown where there’s going to be just tens and tens of thousands of people coming down for all the institutions.”
In addition, there will be live entertainment in the streets, carriage rides, ice sculptures, crafts for the kids and yuletide treats. There will also be a community sing-along on Woodward led by the Salvation Army to close out the night.
Noel Night takes place 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. For more information, click HERE.
