Detroit Parks and Recreation seeks new vendors for community events
The department is hosting four sessions in February to get Detroit business owners signed up to be vendors for the city.
The Detroit Parks & Recreation department is expanding what it offers to its residents. They’re bringing back old favorites while adding new programs to attract a wide range of residents.
Last year, the department’s Fall and Winter Fests highlighted local businesses and brought the community together with leaders and family-friendly events in the neighborhoods.
Jasmine Barnes is chief of policy and engagement for the Parks & Rec. General Services Department. She says she believes all city residents deserve access to community spaces.
“It’s a department-wide initiative to make sure recreation is accessible to Detroiters within their neighborhood and we’re super excited for this movement.”
The department isn’t slowing down anytime soon. This year, they are hosting four sessions to get Detroit business owners signed up to be vendors for the city. Upcoming Vendor Recruitment Fairs will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 7, Thursday, Feb. 16 and Tuesday, Feb. 21.
There are also several other events planned through the year, including an America’s Got Talent-style talent search.
