(Correction: Though the block party is free to attend, the food is not free. We’ve updated this story to reflect that.)

A Detroit-based retailer of high-end goods will hold a party with food and music this weekend.

Shinola is scheduled to host a party “inspired by the classic American summer” in the Whitman-Walker parking lot across from 1631 14th St. NW this Saturday from 3 to 8 p.m., the company said in a press release.

During the event, attendees can munch on snacks from the Dog Tag Bakery and bring their pets along for the festivities, organizers said. The party will also feature free activities and other “seasonal treats.”

Michigan band Greensky Bluegrass is slated to perform during the party along with local group Howard Gospel Choir.

Shinola will also sell tote bags in collaboration with FEED during the event to benefit Forgotten Harvest, a Detroit nonprofit that feeds children and families in need.
