The Detroit riverfront is one of the most exciting, fluid spaces in the city of Detroit. Whether you enjoy running or biking, fishing or sunbathing, yoga or tai chi; the riverfront has something for everyone!
Along with annual events like River Days or the RiverFront 5K/10K, there are also a number of FREE events people can partake in on a weekly basis. Check out this list of complimentary events to enjoy on the Detroit riverfront, hosted by the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan:
  • Walk the Riverfront Wednesdays: Every Wednesday through mid-August, join others living and working in Detroit for a walk during your lunch hour or break. Sign in via an online portal to record your progress and receive a free BCBSM-branded gift.
  • Weekly Tai Chi: Every Wednesday at 10 a.m., Urban Solace Studio hosts free tai chi classes on the riverfront. Tai chi offers many health benefits, including reduced pain and stiffness, improved sleep and delayed aging.
  • Moonlight Yoga: Join the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy for night yoga classes on the riverfront in the summer. Participants will receive free glow bands and enjoy a relaxing night time workout amongst friends.
