City of Champions Day

April 18 2020 | 12:00pm to 3:00pm

It was the date and year that will live with us forever - April 18, 1936. The Governor of Michigan declared April 18th "Detroit Champions' Day" and declared, "it is my earnest wish that citizens of the state will observe the day by a display of flags, banners and pictures of our champions when possible."

Be a part of the 84-year old Detroit tradition at the Detroit Historical Museum. Enjoy beer tasting and tailgate-style mingling with fellow sports lovers. Then, take a walk down memory lane with Murray Howe, son of Detroit and NHL legend, and true champion, Gordy Howe.

Free with general admission
