BravoBravo! 2014

Escape the Everyday...a cultural experience

Join us at the spectacular Detroit Opera House to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of cultures from around the world. We're adding new sponsors every day. Check back regularly to see who else has joined the party!

Packing the Detroit Opera House, with over 2,500 of metro Detroit area's finest, BravoBravo! has sold out since 2009. Specifically targeted to the young professional, we bring together like-minded individuals with a sincere interest in assisting the support of this major cultural resource of the city of Detroit and the surrounding region. Since launching this event in 1999, BravoBravo! has raised well over a million dollars. This much needed funding directly supports our artistic and educational endeavors, and the continued improvement and sustainability of the Detroit Opera House. Entering our 15th year, BravoBravo! continues to work with the community by enlisting the support of local restaurants, businesses, musicians, and volunteers.

BravoBravo! 2014 will be hosted by Jay Towers of Fox 2 WJBK and FRESH 100.3, and feature main stage entertainment by La Dolce Vita, DJ Stacey "Hottwaxx" Hale featuring Nyumba Muziki LIVE, and DJ Matt Aubrey and TOnE'.
