Cruise Ins are on pause for July 1 and July 8 due to the increase in COVID related cases in the state of Michigan.
Bring your wheels and make some memories!
Wednesday Nights from 5 – 8pm, May through September
Wednesday Night Cruise-Ins at the Gilmore Car Museum have become an annual summer tradition! It is FREE to bring your collector car on the grounds during Cruise-In and the event is open to the public. On good weather nights, the fun starts at 5 pm and runs until 8 pm, with both George & Sally’s authentic 1941 Blue Moon Diner and The Grillmore serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and creamy old-fashioned custard throughout the evening.
With music providing the soundtrack, either oldies or live performances, these are evenings you and your family won’t forget! So, plan to bring your ride, snap a photo in front of the 1930s Shell station, cruise our amazing grounds, and enjoy an evening of great wheels and memories.
