Dally in the Alley 2018

Beer, music, food, fun, YOU. The usual.
Join us for the 41st Dally in the Alley! This year, we've added an expanded Kid's Fair, an additional Beer Garden, an extra merchandise booth, more art for your viewing pleasure, upgraded sound at the stage and, of course, the hottest music acts in the city!

Once again this year, the Dally in the Alley is happy to work with our neighbors Motor City Brew Works to supply the bread and butter of the Dally: the beer. Our beer garden was such a wonderful success last year that we decided to double down and have a second beer garden this year. That gives all you Dalliers a beer garden on Hancock, the new beer garden on Forest between 2nd and Cass, beer tents at Forest and 2nd and Forest and 3rd, and finally the tried and true Alley beer garages.
We have a great variety of options for Dalliers this year. We're offering 4 different beers; Ghettoblaster (an amber ale), Lager (lighter option), Kitty Hop (the 40th anniversary New England style IPA), and a Summer-y ale with hints of citrus. There's also a Cider (for Cider fans and the glutton free), and an Elixir (similar to a wine cooler). In addition to these Motor City staples we'll offer multiple varieties of white and red wine, as well as Faygo pop and bottled water for non-alcohol options. Its the beer and wine sales that allow us to put on Dally every year, and one of the reasons that we are able to stay one of the few independent and un-sponsored festivals in the Detroit! So please, support Dally by stopping by and buying a drink!
