Registration Closed For Initial Michigan Central Events

Back in June 2018, Ford announced that it was purchasing Michigan Central Station, a historic site that had been unoccupied – and essentially falling apart – for quite a few years prior to that point. Since then, the automaker has spent a significant amount of money renovating the site and transforming it into a mobility hub that will soon house a number of companies, with a grand opening celebration set to take place on June 6th. However, registration for those special events has now closed.

Michigan Central has announced that registration for its upcoming events – Live from Detroit: The Concert at Michigan Central and Open House – has closed, but both that site and Ford Motor Company plan to offer additional opportunities to experience The Station on select dates throughout the summer beginning June 21st, though the two entities stopped short of providing any further details.

The Michigan Central opening ceremony kicks off on June 6th with a free 90-minute concert in front of the station, which will feature well-known Detroit musical artists, coupled with short films, appearances by local leaders, and creators telling stories of innovation and culture from around the city and the region. It will be followed by Michigan Central OPEN, a 10-day open house for the public that will allow them to see the first floor of the renovated train station June 7th-16th.

After spending $1 billion on the renovation of Michigan Central and the surrounding area, Ford is set to welcome a host of mobility-focused companies to that site in the coming months and years. However, that investment has already had a tremendous impact on the Corktown community, as property values have soared since the automaker announced that it was embarking on this ambitious project years ago.
