Detroit Aglow

For the past 37 years, the Detroit Aglow dinner has brought the community together to kick-off the holiday season while raising funds for DDP’s core programs and initiatives. We are happy to announce that this cherished and long-standing tradition is returning this year and we’d love for you to join us and celebrate.

In the interest of our collective health and safety, we request that all attendees and staff are vaccinated.

If you have any questions, please send an email to Mary Riegle.

Thank You To Our Sponsors


Detroit Aglow has grown beyond a one-night celebration — it is a winter-long campaign to celebrate the holidays in the city! Beginning in mid-November, Downtown will be “aglow” with dazzling lights, unique displays and the iconic 60-foot Michigan-grown tree in Campus Martius Park. DDP hopes you will continue our efforts to keep Detroit Aglow and spread joy throughout the season. With your support, DDP looks forward to continuing to create a vibrant Downtown that offers something special for everyone in every season.
