The Scott Fountain on Belle Isle is beautiful. But some may remember that at one point, it had even more detail. The basin was covered in Pewabic tiles which were destroyed in a 2010 “restoration” attempt.

To help fund the replacement of the fountain’s former glory, the Belle Isle Conservancy will host Sunset at the Scott for the second consecutive year.

WHEN: The event is set to take place on Thursday, Aug. 10 from 6p.m. -10p.m. on Belle Isle’s paddock.

DRINKS + FUN: Guests will enjoy drinks including Stroh’s beer, Don Q Rum and Death’s Door Spirits, and appetizers all while mingling with other attendees under the summer sunset. The evening will also include a VIP lounge with a private bar provided by Wolf Moon Mixers. Pewabic Pottery will Pewabic Street Team mobile mini museum as well as a pop-up shop. Patrons can capture memories at a TapSnap photobooth kiosk where souvenir photos including the Scott Fountain and the Detroit skyline will be available for purchase. Rickshaw Detroit will provide pedi-cab service during the event, with a live DJ set by @djwithajd, DJ Breeze, setting the summer evening mood.

COST: Tickets are $40 for general admission, $100 for VIP admission, and are available until Aug. 6. Limited general admission tickets will be available at the door. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
