Big Sean may have canceled his big homecoming show at Little Caesars Arena this month, but the rapper something even bigger on tap for his home town.

The Sean Anderson Foundation will present the first of what's planned to be an annual Detroit's On Now (D.O.N.) festival, running June 21-25 with a variety of events at locations throughout the city. In a statement Big Sean says, "I always love giving back to the city that gave me so much. I just want to start the summer off right..."

D.O.N. will include a Fashion Mogul Challenge competition for clothing and shoe designers, as well as a Motown Jam on June 21 at the Motown Historical Museum, featuring tours and live performances in Studio A. A 10-hour Block Party, including a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, a live DJ and a movie takes place June 23 at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center Eastside, while an Occupy The Corner rally on June 24 will include a voter registration drive and other topical issues.

D.O.N. wraps at 4 p.m. June 25 with the 3rd Annual L.I.T.E. Fest celebrating local youth at Detroit's West Riverfront Park.
