The official Woodward Dream Cruise takes place annually in August, on the third Saturday, from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Grass Roots, Revered Pavement, World Stage Did you know that the Woodward Dream Cruise actually started as a small fundraiser to raise money for a soccer field in Ferndale, Michigan? In August 1995, Nelson House and a group of volunteers looked to relive and recreate the nostalgic heydays of the 50s and 60s, when youth, music and Motor City steel roamed Woodward Avenue, America’s first highway. That year, 250,000 people participated—nearly ten times the number expected. The rest, as they say, is history. https://www.woodwarddreamcruise.com
