Where to Celebrate the Woodward Dream Cruise

The sound of engines revving up and down Woodward can only mean one thing - the Woodward Dream Cruise is upon us! Almost 1.5 million people take part in the annual tradition of celebrating the Motor City by showing off their classic (and not so classic) cars.


#FunFact: The Woodward Dream Cruise originally kicked off in August 1995 as a fundraiser for a soccer field in Ferndale. Nelson House and a group of volunteers’ initial thought was to relive and recreate the days of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Nobody expected the fundraiser to attract 250,000 people! Today, the cruise draws global attendance from as far as New Zealand and Australia!
