NEXTGen Detroit Presents An EPIC Night at the Carnival
M – 1 Event Center

November 6, 2021
7:30 PM – 11 PM
M1 Concourse Event Center

This year, we’re dropping the mic and raising a tent in celebration of 10 years as NEXTGen Detroit.

Our premier annual fundraiser has left the theater and is popping up at the brand-new, open-air M1 Concourse Event Center in the form of an after-dark carnival complete with fairway games, prizes, music, cocktails, fair food, entertainers and more!

You must be 21 or over to attend. Dietary laws observed.

What to wear this year?
Dress cute, but cozy, it’s an outdoor carnival in November after all!

We will send email updates prior to the event reflecting the CDC’s most recent recommendations to ensure this event is COVID-conscious and safe.

As of today, this event is:

Make an EPIC impact!

In addition to the cost of a ticket, a minimum donation of $100 to the Jewish Federation’s 2022 Annual Campaign is required from each EPIC guest.

Your gift will support the Jewish Federation and our 17 local and three international agencies that work to take care of the needs of the Jewish people and build a vibrant Jewish future here in Detroit, in Israel and around the world.

Jewish Family Services
Friends and family of Women’s Philanthropy’s Tikkun Olam Volunteers (TOV) and JFamily fulfilled the mitzvah of sending Mishloach Manot, Purim Packages! We assembled and delivered over 500 Purim Parcels to our community’s Jewish seniors living in non-Jewish housing and to sick children in local hospitals.


We are so excited to say that An EPIC Night at the Carnival is SOLD OUT! 

Thank you everyone for your continued support of NEXTGen Detroit and the Jewish Federation. If you couldn’t make it this time, we hope to see you at another event soon! And if you are interested in getting on the EPIC waiting list, please email
