Where To Park at the Detroit Auto Show

Parking for the auto show Detroit is around $20. Most you can pay with credit card. If you park away from Huntington Place you may need to pay in cash to an attendant so it's always good to have a few $1 and $5 bills with you in case they don't have change. 

  • We highly recommend parking at Huntington Place.

Huntington Place Parking Garage - 1 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI. The Washington Boulevard garage is located at the corner of Larned St. and Washington Blvd., underneath Huntington Place. This garage features 640 covered parking spaces on two levels. Parking is $20 as of 2023. You can pay with a credit card.  

Chris and I like to arrive at the show right at opening so we can get the rooftop parking. We park all the way to the back near Elevator 3 which is the 5th floor.  Take the elevator down to the second floor where you can buy tickets and see the show.  More info on Huntington Place Parking

Detroit Auto Show In-The-Know Tips

  • Utilize the Detroit People Mover from the Detroit Auto Show at Huntington Place (Formerly known as Cobo Hall) to get to Greektown, the Renaissance hotel and more!  It's only 75 cents per person each direction!  There is a machine for tokens right next to the entrance to the People Mover. 
  • We recommend showing up EARLY as the show is packed by noon.  By 2:00 p.m. the crowds will be quite large.
  • There are lots of restrooms at the show.
  • Coat check is available for around $5 per coat...have cash. 
  • Right next to the coat check is a shop that has breakfast, drinks and lunch items.
  • There are lots of places to purchase water, snacks and drinks inside the Detroit auto show. 
  • Plan to spend about 3 hours at the show so you can enjoy it all. 

Detroit Auto Show Accessibility

1 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI 48226

Do you have accessibility needs?  During a previous trip we had a wheelchair (snowmobiling mishap!) so we learned a lot about accessibility challenges. 

  1. You can rent wheelchairs on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  2. We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel because you can take the Detroit People Mover to Huntington Place.  No need to move your vehicle!  
  3. Uber-you can easily get around the city with Uber, just be sure to request the XL vehicle.  
  4. Personal motorized wheelchairs or scooters are allowed.
  5. If using a wheelchair, know that most of the hall is carpeting and it gets very hard to push through the displays if the carpet is thick.

Previous Years of Detroit Car Show Photos....

It was fun to visit Toyota as they know how to rock the interactive entertainment.  Don a pair of VR goggles and go on a 3D ride-along!  We loved looking all around the inside of Toyota's new tiny concept vehicles with VR goggles. 

Chevrolet also had an exciting experience with VR goggles in previous years. 

Just a few steps away Toyota offered show goers one heck of an experience.  Simply climb into a spider-looking racing simulator, strap in and prepare to be the next top racer as the simulator weaves and bobs like a sci-fi movie.  It was definitely a hit with show goers!  

From the 2019 Auto Show: We Saw A Truck Made With Legos....WHAAAT?

This Chevy Silverado was made with Legos!  Seriously, how cool is that?
