Marygrove Conservancy Block Party Today in Detroit Features Educational Activities

It’s back-to-school fun with a twist.


The Marygrove Conservancy will be hosting a Summer Block Party event from noon to noon on Saturday, August 13. The Block Party will take place on Marygrove’s campus, 8425 West McNichols Road in Detroit.  

The Block Party will feature an array of local live entertainment, campus tours, free food for the first 500 guests, activities for the whole family, community resources, and more. Highlights include laptop giveaways from Human IT, a performance from the Detroit Youth Choir, the Michigan Humane Society’s pop-up vaccination clinic, and over 40 more Marygrove tenants and community-based businesses and organizations. This will be the first major public event held on Marygrove’s campus in over two years. The Conservancy looks forward to welcoming the community back for a day of fun for the whole family. 

The Block Party will also serve as a final external enrollment push as The School at Marygrove welcomes its inaugural classes of kindergarten through second-grade students for the 2022-023 school year. The School at Marygrove is committed to developing young critical thinkers who will grow to be community-minded citizens, makers, and leaders in the 21st century. This new campus will continue to leverage its strong partnership with Starfish Family Services, The University of Michigan School of Education, The School at Marygrove, and the Marygrove Conservancy. School staff and representatives will be present at the Block Party event to provide information and offer on-site enrollment assistance.
