Don't miss the biggest car event in the state

The motto of this event is “Where the cars are the stars.” The show is all about the beauty and the unlikely elegance of cars. Metro Cruise has been held since 2005, and it continues to surprise its guests with magnificent vintage vehicles and rare collections. Hosting about 200,000 spectators every year, this show is the biggest car display in West Michigan.


A family-friendly event with entertainment options for all ages, Metro Cruise is jam-packed with events and activities for everyone. The highlight of the festival is of course, the car collection displays, which include more than 340 different models of cars from various time periods. In addition, you can also taste delicious dishes from one of the 12 food trucks, while listening to live music by five local bands, who'll showcase some of their best hits on the Main Stage.

The finale for the Miss Metro Cruise contest will also take place during this weekend, so consider stopping by to cheer for your favorite candidate. For some child-friendly entertainment, visit the Kids tent, which offers face painting, a paintball tunnel, car construction kits for future mechanics, coloring sheets and much more. You can also go to various vehicle-related demonstrations, buy official Metro merchandise, take part in giveaways, and so much more.
