Event Details

Our Retail Boot Campers have been working hard for the past eight weeks, and this showcase is their chance to show us what their company is all about and prove to a panel of judges that they deserve to win $5,000 and rent-free pop-up space for the prime retail month of December. 

Each participant will host a popup at the event, giving attendees the opportunity to see what products the companies offer -- the merchandise on display will range from speciality gifts and artisan wares to unique sodas and baked goods.

In addition to the popups, each Retail Boot Camper will pitch their business to a panel of judges. The first-place winner of the pitching competition will receive the $5,000 and rent-free pop-up space, thanks to the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation's REVOLVE program. The second- and third-place winners will receive $2,000 and $1,000, respectively. 

Appetizers and refreshments will be provided. 

Limited parking will be available at Triumph Church (2760 E. Grand Blvd), in addition to adjacent street parking
