2022 Detroit Auto Show: What to know to plan your visit

NAIAS scheduled for public showing Sept. 17-25 at Huntington Place

Detroit Auto Show returns in Sept. after pandemic hiatus

DETROIT – The Motor City has been home to car fans since the late 1890s.

The first Detroit Auto Show started in 1907 and has made its home in Downtown Detroit ever since. As the show has evolved, we can notice that history repeats itself. Before being consistently held at Huntington Place, formerly known as Cobo Hall, the show was held at Beller’s Beer Garden at Riverside Park.

Below is information about the NAIAS. You can find the full public show schedule and live entertainment schedule here.
