Detroit 2020!

The 2020 International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous will be held July 2-5, 2020, in Detroit, Michigan, with the theme “Love and Tolerance is Our Code.” AA members and guests will commemorate AA’s birthday and share their experience, strength and hope with big meetings held Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday morning in the domed Ford Field Stadium. Many other meetings, panels and workshops will take place throughout the weekend in the Cobo Center in downtown Detroit, in walking distance from Ford Field.

Every five years since 1950, International Conventions have been held in U.S. and Canadian cities with cultures and personalities as varied as the alcoholics who travel to them for the celebration. Detroit is no exception. Downtown Detroit is filled with new office space, apartment buildings, restaurants and other amenities, and is planning on welcoming AA with open arms—the 50,000 attendees will make this convention the largest the city has ever hosted, according to the Detroit Convention Bureau.
