The 41st annual Noel Night took place on Saturday, December 7th, 2013, from 5:00pm-10:00pm in Midtown Detroit. Over 70 Midtown venues, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Michigan Science Center, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Historical Museum, and the Detroit Public Library, amongst many others, opened their doors to the public FREE of CHARGE during this Cultural Center-wide holiday "open house." Activities includes holiday shopping, horse-drawn carriage rides, family craft activities and performances by over 200 area music, theatre, and dance groups. The evening's festivities culminated with a community sing-along on Woodward Avenue led by the Salvation Army Band—a long-standing Noel Night tradition.

Free shuttle service was offered between participating venues. Convenient parking was available in area lots. Noel Night is produced by Midtown Detroit, Inc., a nonprofit community development organization that supports economic growth in Detroit's Midtown district.
