Two of the major stadiums and arenas in Detroit are now sensory inclusive after partnering with KultureCity. On Thursday, it was announced that Little Caesars Arena and Comerica Park will promote an accommodating and positive experience for those with sensory needs.

Comerica will be the first MLB ballpark to be certified by KultureCity while LCA becomes the first NHL/NBA combo arena with certification.

On top of that, event staff at both facilities are trained and certified by leading medical professionals to recognize guests with sensory needs, and also how to handle a situation where someone has sensory overload.

Sensory bags, equipped with noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads will be available to all guests, and fans will have access to sensory areas if they need a quieter and more secure environment.

“We’re thrilled to partner with KultureCity and provide guests at Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena a comfortable and protected experience when they attend a sporting event, concert or show,” said Chris Granger, Group President, Sports & Entertainment, Ilitch Holdings, Inc.

Olympia Entertainment is now in the process of becoming sensory inclusive at The Fox Theatre.
