Rent the Park
As the signature public space in downtown Detroit, Campus Martius Park is a much sought-after location for concerts, performances, product launches, and many other types of public and private events. With its seasonal plantings, spectacular fountain, lawns, plaza and crushed granite promenades, and—of course—its French tables and chairs, the park offers Detroiters a uniquely European-feeling outdoor space.
Campus Martius Park has a commitment to serve the public and enhance the neighborhood by providing green space and a central gathering place. The Conservancy, a non-profit organization, carefully considers proposals for events in the park in light of their potential to support this commitment.
To hold an event in Campus Martius Park, we ask that you submit a proposal with details about your event with adequate time for review.
For large-scale events, it is recommended to submit your proposal three to six months prior to your preferred event date(s). Proposals for smaller events may be considered with one to two months of lead time.
Please refer to the location map below
Complete proposals will be reviewed as soon as possible, usually within one week, at which point one of our events associates will contact you. Estimated fees cannot be given until a complete proposal has been submitted and reviewed by the Events Department.Campus Martius Park Event Proposal Guidelines Campus Martius Park Map (pdf)

The park has been the host to several very high-profile events and the staff is very experienced in working with national event producers and sponsors.
