Quicken Loans Winter Blast Weekends has an exciting history here in Detroit. In January 2005 Winter Blast, the festival known as Motown Winter Blast, kicked off as the official countdown to Super Bowl XL in Detroit. The festival attracted more than one million people to Detroit during the Super Bowl in 2006! For the past 14 years Winter Blast has continued to attract Metro-Detroit residents to the exciting revitalized Downtown Detroit area.

We would like to thank our sponsors Quicken Loans Community Fund, Delta Dental, Detroit DDA, Michigan Lottery, Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, Chemical Bank and many more for their tremendous support of Winter Blast Weekends. We also thank the City of Detroit for promoting this positive experience!
