Comerica CityFest, formerly known as Comerica TasteFest, is a free, five-day outdoor food and entertainment festival held during the Fourth of July weekend in Detroit's historic New Center. Comerica CityFest is an award winning, “taste-making”, Detroit festival with an incredible mix of local restaurants selling “tastes” of their specialties, free international, regional and local musical acts on four stages, a unique marketplace selling Detroit products and memorabilia, artists, children’s attractions and extreme sports.

Comerica CityFest is free to the public and supported by many of Detroit's top radio and television stations, as well as the local print media. Over 500,000 people attend the event each year.

Last year’s performers included Common, The New Pornographers, Cat Power, Ray Davies, Spyro Gyra, Mavis Staples, Kings of Leon, Eric Burden and the Animals, The All American Rejects, Damone, Amadou and Mariam, Amp Fiddler, Calvin Cooke and Kevin Mahogany to name just a few.

This five day celebration of people, music, food and shopping is produced by New Center Council, whose mission is to foster and create a rich urban experience in their district year around. This festival has generated over $1,000,000 in profit that supports NCC initiatives in the areas of public space maintenance, economic development and planning, and youth and charitable programs.

The Comerica CityFest is a recipe for success on many levels. It supports a vital Detroit community, offers a great "City" experience for over 500,000 attendees, provides artists a great opportunity for exposure and provides a strong marketing vehicle for its sponsors and partners.

Please note: Although we will consider every artist who submits, we are primarily looking for artists who have performed live in the Detroit market enough to have developed a strong local/regional draw. Also, all music and stage shows must be appropriate for all ages (i.e. no explicit lyrics).
