Woodward Dream Show Returns for 2022

Two Days of Car Enthusiast Activates in The Motor City


Celebrating 90 years of the 1932 Ford “Deuce” coupe, Lincoln Motors 100th birthday, and the Pontiac Firebird turning 55, the 2022 Woodward Dream Show Presented by Comerica Bank kicks off August 19th, 2022 at the iconic M1 Concourse bringing together car enthusiasts from every genre imaginable. Whether you’re into hot rods, customs, cruisers, muscle cars, or all the above, the Woodward Dream Show has something special for you. Get your tickets here.


In addition to experiencing the more then 650 iconic, hand-picked vehicles that make up the Woodward Dream Show, enthusiasts can take a shot at racing off-road R/C cars on M1’s custom-built off-road track; indulge themselves in the Race Speed Track Experience riding shotgun with one of M1’s professional drivers around the 1.5 mile Champion Motor Speedway, and enjoy music, guest speakers, entrainment, awards, and more at the M1 Stage.



Car clubs are invited to apply for a “Car Corral” where an area within the show will be designated specifically for your club members to park and enjoy the Woodward Dream Cruise weekend with in/out privileges, and access to all activities at the show, plus the possibility of participating in the invite-only Woodward Dream Parade. Interested parties can submit their club’s application here. Individuals interested in the unique opportunity to display their car during the show, can apply here.



This year’s “Insiders Garage” hosted by “Big Jim” O’Brien from 94.7 WCSX includes an exclusive panel discussion with experts like Adam Genei, creator of Mobsteel; Kevin Byrd, co-host of Two Guys Garage; Steve Mank, Musclecar co-host; and hot-rod and custom-car designer Murray Pfaff from Pfaff Designs.


If you’re looking to ‘fill the tank’ be sure to swing by the Arena Biergarten or Pit Stop Alley where premium food trucks will be on-site and beverages available for purchase.


Another highlight of this year show is the State-of-the-art Peoples’ Choice voting style digital voting systems available on the show grounds where attendees are encouraged to cast their vote for their favorite vehicle in each class. Also, during the show be sure to stop by the Lifestyle Pavilion and check out the displays from M1’s partners and vendors.


Saturday, August 2022, by invite-only, selected cars and guests hit the road in The Woodward Dream Parade; a police-escorted 200 vehicle parade cruising Woodward Ave and downtown Pontiac’s historic Widetrack Drive.
