Sukkah x Detroit celebrates the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot in Detroit’s Capitol Park through design, agriculture, and Jewish programming. Detroit, home to 1300 urban farms, is the only UNESCO City of Design in the United States. Sukkah x Detroit honors both. 

The week-long celebration will take place on September 23-30, 2018, as part of Detroit’s Month of Design. Throughout the week, 5-7 sukkahs, selected through an international design competition, will be on display in Detroit's historic Capitol Park, accompanied by complementary programs and events to be announced.
