2018 DXF Spring Soirée Recap

A huge thank you to everyone that helped make our first ever DXF Spring Soirée the success that it was! We had such a great time with all of you, celebrating our mutual admiration for Detroit and reminiscing over the last 12 years of DXF in all it's iterations!

We'd like to call special attention to our friends at Comcast, UHY, Indian Trails and Huntington Bank who helped make this event possible through their generous donations.

DXF Update

Detroit Experience Factory (DXF) is a nonprofit that has taken 100,000 people on experiential tours of Detroit since we began in 2006. 70% of those tour attendees are locals because our focus has always been on residents learning more about the neighborhoods, small businesses and community assets in their own backyard. Though Detroit Experience Factory is mostly known for its custom tours, they are only part of our work. The other part of DXF includes the services that don’t bring in revenue including pop up welcome centers at events around the city, free walking tours, creation of maps, checklists and other city resources and overall being a megaphone for the great people, places and projects in Detroit.

As you may have heard the Welcome Center will be closing at the end of March due to lack of funding. DXF brings in revenue through our custom tours, which will continue no matter what however, our community-focused programs are designed to be a public service to the people and businesses of metro Detroit and as such are supported through fundraising efforts. In response to requests from our community DXF has launched a crowdfunding campaign that, though not intended to save the Welcome Center, will allow us to continue the other work we do including pop up welcome centers at events around the city, free walking tours, creation of maps, checklists and other city resources and overall being a megaphone for the great people, places and projects in Detroit.

As city of Detroit residents, our work is not just a job, it’s part of our lives. We value the positive impact we are able to have in our community and hope to be able to continue that work for many years to come
