Motor City Month

About the Motor City Month

Our goal is to officially recognize the month of August as the “Motor City Month” celebrating and sponsoring some of Michigan’s 1000′s of car shows and inviting people from all over the country to come experience Michigan based events such as “The Woodward Dream Cruise”

Metro Detroit is not really known for tourism, but we have a lot of great things to celebrate! Motor City Month is a great way to showcase Metro Detroit, and all of Michigan. It is our time to shine, and show the whole country what Michigan has to offer. It is also a good way to bring money to the Metro Detroit economy. The Woodward Cruise alone brings in over 56 Million dollars for the Metro Detroit economy.

Motor City Month will link together Michigan events, and Michigan charities. Advertising / costs for the events is paid for by sponsors. Sponsors of Motor City Month not only get great advertising but also benefit by helping charities such as the Pink Ribbon Warriors, and Homes for Heroes.

We’re doing this to promoting Detroit tourism, while enjoying our love for automobiles and helping charities at the same time. If you would like to be a part of Motor City Month feel free to email us at
