3rd Annual Picnic & Backpack Drive - 2008

Welcome to the official website of the Detroit House Music Picnic and "Back To School" Backpack Drive - House Music for A Cause. The event happens on Saturday August 9, 2008 and marks the 3rd year for the event and has grown from it's modest beginnings to earn an "official website" as a point of contact and info for the event.

The Picnic started in 2005 as way for local House Heads to enjoy a family oriented Summer day at the Park, with a sound system of course. A decision was made to make the event have a purpose so the idea was proposed for all attendees to bring a Backpack filled with School Supplies to be donated to a local school to help "kids in need" start the upcoming school year off right.

Now, in our 3rd year, the event is growing... with hopes of one day becoming a major event like the Detroit Electronic Music Festival or the Chosen Few Picnic in Chicago. Feel free to bring friends, family, tents & lawn chairs, and even your BBQ grill for this day long fun filled event.

Planning for the event is getting down to the wire so we suggest you check this site regularly (especially the Blog) for the latest news and info. The full DJ Lineup will be posted soon along with info on After Parties and other weekend happenings.

Please visit our Sponsor and Support page for listings of people and places that help make this event possible. Area clubs, businesses and events will be official "Drop Off Points" for Backpack donations so you won't have to lug the backpack to Belle Isle on the day of the Picnic.

See you at the Picnic!
