Woodward Dream Cruise & Berkeley CruiseFest

We were lucky enough to visit Detroit Motor City during the 2014 Woodward Dream Cruise & Berkeley Cruise Fest. About one million people attend each year. This event is about cars...mix in some cruising, showing off, partying, hanging out, entertainment, people watching and cars.

Everything from classics, customs, street rods, muscle cars, trucks, hot rods, collector and specialty vehicles are on the itinerary. Also bands and djs, music entertainment and a variety of things to see and do up and down the route.

Woodward Dream Cruise 2014 was fun! The weather was perfect and the cars were amazing.
The Cruise starts one mile north of Detroit in Ferndale, MI and goes up to Pontiac, MI, and back. About 10 miles each way, it has several high profile cruise areas, the three most popular are at 13 Mile & Woodward, 9 Mile & Woodward, and top of the loop in Pontiac.

There is no fee to drive in the Woodward Dream Cruise and no admission charge to watch it. Anyone can cruise but those not driving a classic car must stay out of the two right lanes (curb side). Woodward Ave is generally eight lanes wide, four lanes in each direction (north/south) divided by a median or turn lane.

Cool Facts: Woodward Avenue (M-1) was the first concrete roadway in the country. It is listed as an Automotive Heritage Trail (an All-American Road), plus a Michigan Heritage Route.
Woodward Dream Cruise Official Merchandise: – online store has current and limited edition items. shirts, hats, hoodies, cups, pins, poster, more. If you a diehard hotrodder, this event needs to be on your "To Do List."
