93rd Annual June Day, June 10th 2023

June Day is an annual summertime celebration in the center of North Rosedale Park that started way back about 1930 and was called “the Carnival of the Community”. It has always been a cornerstone in defining the greatness of our unique Detroit neighborhood and it’s coming soon to a park near you!

It’s heartwarming to experience the people coming together to organize, decorate, cheer on the festivities, compete in games and team build, cook and eat together, share talents and genuinely care for each other, laugh and have some fun together.

We have a terrific day planned, full of fun for the entire family but WE NEED YOUR HELP too! You are all encouraged to decorate your bicycles to ride in the parade, to create a float to represent your business, your block club, your neighborhood committee, to join the “I grew up in Rosedale Park” float with a sign showing how long you have lived here, or to just simply line the curbs of Bretton Drive by 10:15 am to cheer on the parade and kick off the festivities!

Please mark your calendars! We would love to fill the Community House grounds with people! Tell and remind your neighbors! Ask questions, make suggestions, volunteer to help throughout the days events, make some noise and get to know your neighbors and the pride of being a resident in our beautiful North Rosedale Park community! We can’t wait to see you there!

Feel free to contact Amyloaks@yahoo.com or peter@nrpca.org to donate, volunteer or for any questions you may have.
