House of Vans pop-up is making Detroit its next major stop for a four day day event – their biggest yet.

From January 24 to 27, Vans’ team will throw down with music, skating, workshops, art installations, food, and much more – all for free to the public (with an RSVP). The festivities will focus on all of the great things Detroit has to offer – and there are a lot – all hosted at The Jefferson School, a historic building at 950 Selden Street in West Midtown.

“Detroit has a rich and eclectic history across music and art, along with a burgeoning skate scene that closely aligns with Vans’ own history and mindset,” shared Vans’ Senior Manager of Lifestyle Brand Marketing Brooke Burt. “It is truly an honor to bring House of Vans to life in Detroit alongside this incredibly creative and inspiring community.”

The music programming is worthy of a slow clap with headliners like Thundercat, Danny Brown, Protomartyr, and Amber Mark, among many others. Local Detroit talent will take over the pop-up state for the signature SESSIONS series for which they are still accepting submissions.

During this long weekend attendees will be able to attend screen printing and customization workshop, mobile vinyl pressing, a modular synth workshop with Matthew Dear, brows around a local street market and record fair. And off course no Vans event can go on without some skateboarding so naturally the Jefferson gym will be transformed into indoor skatepark in collaboration with Community Push.
