The Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest one-day automotive event, drawing 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from around the globe — from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, Japan and the former Soviet Union. North American cruisers from California, Georgia, Canada and all points in between caravan to metro Detroit to participate in what has become, for many, an annual rite of summer.
It’s only right the Dream Cruise takes place in the Motor City. Thousands line America’s first highway for a front row view as classic cruisers and hot rods stroll up and down Woodward Avenue from Ferndale to Pontiac. Attendees talk shop with fellow enthusiasts, hang out tailgate-style and enjoy promotional experiences and activities from sponsors along the route. Bars and restaurants will be filled to the gills too. It’s typically a scorcher, so stay hydrated and lathered in sunscreen — you’ll wanna enjoy Detroit’s most anticipated auto event to the fullest.
