Detroit native and electronic music icon GRiZ announces the 9th annual ‘12 Days Of GRiZMAS’ charity program benefitting Seven Mile Music. This is going to be a blast! It’s coming up soon! From November 29th to December 10th, GRiZ will host a series of events in partnership with local creative outlets and community workshops in order to raise awareness and increase funds for art and music education for Detroit’s Youth, concluding with his two-day GRiZMAS shows at The Masonic Temple. Get ready to party!
Raising over $500,000 since 2014 for youth music education, GRiZ has received the ‘Spirit of Detroit’ award for his work around GRiZMAS, which has been called an ‘utterly sincere community effort’ by The Guardian. And of course, GRiZ works closely with Seven Mile Music, an organization who seeks to bridge access and opportunity for local youth in the arts through afterschool and summer camp programming. The program will have its grand opening at the new GRiZMAS headquarters pop-up store on Tuesday, November 29th at 5:00PM in the heart of Downtown Detroit’s Capitol Park at 1265 Griswold Street.
And get ready to enjoy the holidays in GRiZ style! Spend a little time at the official GRiZMAS Workshop to find exclusive GRiZ merchandise and holiday gifts including tees, hoodies, hats, scarves, beanies, blankets, mugs, ornaments, candles in collaboration with Detroit Rose, and more. And there’s more, because the store will also host an ongoing coat and toy drive benefiting St. Vincent de Paul, a charity auction, and donation-based gift wrapping station. There is so much good! More than just a store, the GRiZMAS Workshop will also include a holiday creation station where fans can customize merch and a lounge area with a coffee bar with free cups of this year’s GRiZMAS coffee. We’re ready to enjoy the season!
In an exciting collaboration with Coffeehaus, GRiZ coffee will be releasing a new special GRiZMAS 2022 Roast! You can taste test this rich Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee with notes of blackberry, peach, and strawberry. Sounds delicious! This year’s specially designed limited edition 12 oz bag is designed by Detroit artist Morgan McPeak. The 2022 Roast is available at the GRiZMAS Store and online, with 100% of proceeds from every purchase going towards Seven Mile. What a great way to give back!
Everything kicks off November 29th with new events, Painting with a SMILE, a guided painting activity hosted by Detroit painter and community leader Phillip Simpson at BIG PINK, and Deluxx Karaoke at Deluxx Fluxx. Ready? Day 4 will offer a mystery party with GRiZ performing a secret set in Detroit. The festivities continue through the weekend with a Charity Dodgeball Tournament in partnership with Come Play Detroit at Durfee Elementary School and Community Yoga in the Fountain Ballroom at The Masonic Temple in partnership with Citizen Yoga.
Day 7 invites fans to dance at the Charity Jam with GRiZ & Friends at El Club, an intimate experience featuring ProbCause, Chrishira Perrier, Kevin Donahue, Chris Anderson, Josh Fairman, Ian Finkelstein, and special guests. There is so much to do! Another new event this year, Community Ice Skating at Michigan’s premiere family-friendly outdoor skating rink at Campus Martius will take place on Day 8. The week continues with Local Mic Night at Willis Show Bar and 80’s zombie-disco themed Roller Skating hosted by guest Choff at Bonaventure. The 12 days will conclude with two-nights of GRiZMAS concerts on December 9th and 10th, featuring performances by Dirtysnatcha B2B Carbin, Wreckno, Canabliss, and Khiva.
The GRiZMAS Workshop at 1265 Griswold Street will be open across all ‘12 Days’ from 10 AM – 6 PM. Visit and donate in-person or online to join GRiZ in spreading the holiday cheer and giving back.
