Guests can expect to walk through the village to meet owners who have passionately preserved their vehicles while listening to the distinctive sounds of century-old cars. The experience includes the Pass-in-Review car parade and awards showcasing the best restored and unrestored cars.

Over two days, guests can enjoy historically inspired street food, historic vignettes, dancing, and live music. Dance with performances from River Raisin Ragtime Revue and stay late Saturday evening for the Gaslight Parade of Cars, complete with a Dixieland-style parade.
