Spirit Plaza - Downtown Street Eats

Join us for lunch at Spirit Plaza

“Since the Spirit of Detroit statue’s dedication in September of 1958 by Detroit sculptor Marshall Fredericks, this block of Woodward has long been a natural gathering place for Detroiters to celebrate victories and rally together for unity. Spirit Plaza is envisioned to serve as Detroit’s “civic square”—the city’s first-ever public space designed for all citizens to gather and engage and learn about local initiatives, as well as enjoy in civic, culinary and cultural attractions that highlight Detroit’s many voices and unique identity.

Opened in 2017, the plaza is currently in the pilot stage. The pilot is a data-driven test or experiment period to drive future decisions.

Weekday Plaza activities include a rotating schedule of lunchtime food truck service, 11 a.m.- 2 p.m., and live performances featuring talented youth and established artists representing the cultural diversity found in our city's neighborhoods, each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 11:30am-1:30pm.
