Parking Promotion- 16 Days of Free Parking

To celebrate the grand opening of a 581-space new parking deck at 11 Mile Road and Williams Street, the DDA is funding a promotion that includes 16 days of free parking in June.

Beginning June 6th, visitors will be able to park in any of the five parking garages downtown on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of June.

This promotion is designed to highlight the new parking options and help encourage drivers to park in the decks rather than searching for on-street parking. If you have employees who routinely park on the street, this is a great opportunity to encourage them to park in the decks.

Please feel free to promote this through your own social media channels using the hashtag #ROfreeparking.

Live Music Thursdays

Every Thursday night, businesses that provide live music on Thursday afternoons and evenings can participate in Live Music Thursdays, a downtown-wide promotion of live music in private venues. The goal is to project an image that Downtown Royal Oak is the center of live music in the region. It also creates an atmosphere of energy, fun, and artistic expression in Royal Oak, which reinforces its reputation as an entertainment destination.
The DDA is committing resources to help businesses providing live music work together under a single overarching promotion in the downtown.

This has the potential to develop into a successful effort to promote Royal Oak as a destination on Thursday afternoons and evenings, attracting families and office workers.

This program coordinates downtown businesses who are already providing live music to join in on a downtown-wide promotion. This requires the businesses to book live music on their own and the DDA would provide administrative support in terms of creating a central hub of information to the public and to promote it on its website and on social media.

To get involved, email the Downtown Manager with information about your live music events at your business.
