The food, music and spirit of Detroit are celebrated in the downtown streets with a mixed bag of eats and entertainment. More than 35 of the city's restaurants serve up samples of their specialities to more than 350,000 visitors, who also enjoy a feast of events from skateboard challenges and movie shows to a petting zoo and arts and crafts displays. A main ingredient of the TasteFest is the music, with national and local talent performing on four stages.
