The Center for the Study of Citizenship will host the third annual Civic Festival and Constitution Day on Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the Fountain Court at Wayne State University. The festival celebrates the signing of the US Constitution in 1787, and civic engagement.

The theme this year is Violence in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 uprising. Through music, DJ Peter Croce uses sound to explore what it means to be a human being and a citizen in the 21st Century. The Henry Ford will bring artifacts and its curators will be there to answer questions and to discuss the significance of the artifacts. The Detroit Historical Museum will be exhibiting at the festival an artifact from its 1967 exhibition, and students will have opportunities to learn about campus civic engagement.

Community and student groups are encouraged to reserve tables to promote their organizations at the event. For further information contact Aimée Moran at To register for a table at the event, please click here.

The closest available campus parking is in Parking Structure 2; there is a $7.50/vehicle cost to park, and a credit or debit card is required.
