TechShop Detroit Is Turning One Year Old! June 1, 2013, 11:00AM - 4:00PM

800 Republic Drive, Allen Park, MI 48101

Come rain or come shine, TechShop Detroit is having its One-Year Anniversary Party on Saturday, June 1st.

WHEELS is the theme of the day! Bring your homemade bike to show or favorite bike to tune-up and customize. Dust off the classic car that's been hibernating in the garage all winter. Been working on something weirder than that? Does it have wheels? Maybe it doesn’t? Bring it over!

We've moved the entire event inside, and we're going to have a blast!

Displays, Demos, and Performances

Have a ball riding along with cycle cars, a U of M Dearborn Formula SAE team racer, the Redford Township Unicycle Club, the Thunderdrome! crew and their gonzo banked-track moped racers and more.

Build Competition

Assemble a team and register to build a Star Wars-themed bike during the month of May to show and race on the TechShop track at the party. Registered teams that pull in on event day will automatically win 1 month of free membership and 1 free JumpStart class (limit 5 packages per team). Sign up your team here and compete for big prizes!


Enjoy free make-and-take activities for all ages - From a compressed air paper rocket build and launch to a flat-pack scooter build-off and race!

Food on Wheels!Detroit's premier food trucks will be bringing tasty treats and savory food.

Indoor Maker Market - Area makers, artists and crafters will be displaying and selling their wares!  Support your local makers! Bring cash!
