The Woodward Dream Cruise takes place on the third Saturday in August, along Woodward Avenue, America's first highway.
A 16-mile stretch along legendary Woodward Avenue packs in more than 1.5 million visitors and more than 40,000 muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector and special-interest vehicles from around the globe, in what is touted as the world’s largest one-day celebration of classic car culture. A pilgrimage of sorts for those who own or just like to appreciate the automobile.
The Woodward Dream Cruise is a spectacular experience to drive in or merely marvel at from the sidelines. Along with the cars, expect lots of curbside music performances, activity tents and displays from auto manufacturers, food vendors and more as local businesses along Woodward Avenue make the Dream Cruise their own.
If you want a good curbside seat get there in the early morning. And this granddaddy of car cruises may be just one day on the activities calendar, but honestly it's bubbling all week long. Enjoy this annual rite of summer in metro Detroit with the Woodward Dream Cruise!
