2023 Michigan Car Cruises & Shows

michigan car cruises and shows

.

.

.
Here’s the schedule for car cruises & car shows going on in Michigan in 2023!
.

.

** The listings in RED are events happening EVERY WEEK, same bat time, same bat channel! Be there or be square! C’mon, all the cool kids are doin’ it!

** Items in ORANGE are NATIONAL events!

*** items in PURPLE have been CANCELLED or are RESCHEDULED events !

We try to list only free shows to attend, but since we gather information from a wide variety of sources, there may be some car shows that have entrance fees / donations to participate (usually meaning to show your car, spectating is generally always free)

We try to the best of our ability to keep this information correct, but as with any car show or cruise, you should confirm on your own that the event is actually taking place on the day and in the location stated! We accept no responsibility for any errors in these listings.

Photos of these automobile events, from both past and present shows, can be seen from the “PICS HERE” links that are under the listed events!
