Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

The third-annual Detroit Design Festival will put Detroit's creative community on display Sept. 18 to 22, 2013. This year's DDF will feature 60 events hosted in neighborhoods across Detroit. The festival will connect 300 designers and creative practitioners with new markets and more than 15,000 consumers in 5 days.
