Detroit, MI

Join us for a BYOB trolley ride through Detroit's seasonal attractions, lighting displays and holiday landmarks.

Head to The Whiskey Six (646 St. Clair Ave) for check-in. Here we'll take in the decorations at a neighborhood bar, check-in, meet our tour guide and receive our gift bags as we prep for our gawker ride through Detroit's yuletide lights.

Bring your own beverages for the vintage trolley ride. Cups will be provided on the trolley. As soon as we board the vintage trolley our adventure begins. We'll be whisked off to the Detroit Zoo for the Wild Lights. Here you'll see more than 5 million LED lights illuminating the trees, buildings and more than 100 animal sculptures throughout the zoo. We'll board the trolley again, and cruise down Woodward through downtown Detroit to see their holiday displays and make our way to Campus Martius Park. The drop off at Campus Martius Park will allow time for you to ice skate if you choose!

After soaking in the urban winter wonderland, we'll head back to The Whiskey Six and rave about all the seasonal sparkles we just saw.

 

FAQs

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

benefitzco@gmail.com

How many people fit on a trolley? Can you rent the entire trolley or do a private event?

Yes! Each trolley can fit 34 customers. Inventory is very limited and events are booked on a first come first serve basis. If you're interested in a private trolley please e-mail benefitzco@gmail.com 

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes, this event is 21+. All customers must come with a valid 21+ ID. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please bring your ticket (either printed or electronic) and your ID with you to check-in. 

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

As long as the attendee has a ticket (either printed or electronic) it does not matter if the ticket name matches the name of the attendee. 

Something has come up and I can’t make the event for the date I scheduled. Can I reschedule my ticket for a different date?

You cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Once tickets are purchased all sales are final. You may give your tickets away (again the ticket name does not need to match the attendee name). 

I would like to add on one more ticket for a friend, but it says the event is sold out. Can I add on just one more ticket?

Unfortunately, no. Once an event says sold out there are no more tickets available for that date. We are limited due to seating constraints on the trolley and cannot oversell the event. 

Are we allowed to drink on the trolley?

Yes! The event is BYOB and you are allowed to drink on the trolley. We will have cups provided as you are not to drink out of glass on the trolley.

What time should I arrive for the event?

If you bought a 5-10pm event please arrive for check-in between 5-5:15pm. If you arrive early that's okay, but we will check-in during those scheduled times.  

Where do I park for this event?

There is a paved parking lot located behind Atwater. Directly behind Atwater is a house and next to that house is a paved lot. Parking is available there. Metered parking is free after 6pm and on Sundays.
