Meridian Winter Blast has an exciting history here in Detroit. In January 2005 Winter Blast, formerly known as Motown Winter Blast, kicked off as the official countdown to Super Bowl XL in Detroit. Winter Blast attracted more than one million people to Detroit during the Super Bowl! For the past 12 years Winter Blast has continued to attract Metro-Detroiters to the exciting revitalized Downtown Detroit area!

We would like to thank our sponsors Meridian, Quicken Loans, Detroit DDA, Michigan Lottery, Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, Bedrock Real Estate, and many more for their tremendous support of the Meridian Winter Blast. We also thank the City of Detroit for promoting this positive experience!
