Corktown Sounds 2022

After last year’s re-sounding success, we were left craving for more! We are pleased to announce the summer fun continues as we welcome Corktown Sounds for the second year on Wednesdays in July and August 2022.

We are still seeking sponsors to support this nine week community festival. Contact Bob Roberts, CBA President and owner of McShane’s or email


Corktown Sounds is a Strolling Music Festival in Detroit’s Oldest Neighborhood, featuring local street musicians and buskers encouraging visitors to walk the Corktown neighborhood and support businesses in the summer of 2022.


For our second year, we are inviting musicians to perform every Wednesday from 6pm – 8pm throughout July and August.

We also expanded and will now bring life to 12 corners throughout Corktown along Michigan Avenue. 


  • To continue the positive “buzz” about Corktown.
  • To re-invigorate the environment after the COVID “interruption.”
  • To create and encourage walkability and showcase the new energy in our community.
  • To support the inordinately hard hit small businesses and arts community.
