      EVENT DETAILS
      Beyond Downtown - Mexicantown + Southwest Walking Tour

      On this tour, we will visit one of Detroit's oldest districts. Mexican families began immigrating to Southwest Detroit in the 1940's. With it's longstanding, close-knit neighborhoods and strong cultural roots, Mexicantown is one of the most visited areas in Detroit. You may have eaten at Mexican Village or Los Galanes, but have you played pickup hockey or baseball in Clark Park? Enjoyed a pastry from Mexicantown Bakery?  We can't wait to show you exciting current projects, parks, and local street art in Mexicantown, the gateway to Southwest Detroit! Tour begins promptly at 5:30pm. Please allow yourself a sufficient amount of time to find parking and arrive at the location. The bakery has limited parking spaces for bakery patrons, and requests for tour attendees to park along Vernor Hwy or the surrounding side streets.  We will stop frequently, but please bring comfortable shoes for walking!
