Happening Hamtramck

This tiny town surrounded by Detroit, with its diverse mix of folks and flavors, is gearing up for a green future.

A February Tradition

Love it or loathe it, but for many metro Detroiters Hamtramck is the place to be on “Fat Tuesday,” or “Paczki Day.” Fill your face with jam- or custard-filled pastries before Lent— or just for the heck of it—by heading to one of Hamtramck’s polish bakeries on Feb. 12.

"Our address is more than a place to hang our hats, it’s where we hang our hearts."

"Hamtramck is truly a jewel in Southeast Michigan. It is an area that not only brings together people of all backgrounds but also celebrates the cultural diversity that is so important to our community. Ford Motor Company has a long history of supporting programs that unite people. Whether it is one of the many cultural institutions we fund or innovative programs like Concert of Colors or African World Festival, Ford Motor Company Fund has always been a strong supporter of our region." – Pamela Alexander, director of community development for Ford Motor Company Fund
