Woodward Dream Cruise Saturday, August 19
It's time to rev your engines as the Woodward Dream Cruise roars back to town on Saturday, August 19, bringing thousands of classic cars and more than one million people from across the country to the Woodward Avenue corridor, from Ferndale to Pontiac, with stops in Birmingham and Bloomfield.
Adding to the festivities, the Birmingham Shopping District’s (BSD) Birmingham Cruise Event will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. right in the heart of downtown Birmingham on S. Old Woodward. See hundreds of classic cars on display, explore sponsor displays and interactive exhibits from Chevrolet and more, and hear live broadcasts from WOMC 104.3 FM.
“The tradition of cruising Woodward is a long-standing love affair with what metro Detroit was built on – conjuring up nostalgic memories while making new ones for the next generation,” said BSD Executive Director Cristina Sheppard-Decius. “The Woodward Dream Cruise started 28 years ago with a mission to help fund a soccer field and has now grown into one of the largest one-day events in the U.S., bringing people from all over the world. Birmingham continues to be a partner every year, and we are excited to be bringing back the allure of classic cars to our original location along S. Old Woodward.”
Birmingham's walkable downtown is the ideal place to spend the day or even the entire weekend. The walkable downtown features a wide variety of restaurants from fast, casual cafes to upscale eateries. Hundreds of local and national retailers will be open to welcome shoppers of all ages.
