Where to Park at the Detroit International Auto Show

Click on the map above to zoom in and see the different parking lots.


PRO TIP: It's always best to get to the Detroit International Auto Show early: Less stress and a better chance to get the parking lot you want.


Parking is $15-$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 Roof Deck Parking- The Huntington Place Roof Deck is located at the corner of Congress and Third Streets on the roof of the venue.  This roof deck parking has 1,200 uncovered parking spaces, and provides easy access to both Huntington Place and Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit International Auto Show In-The-Know Tips


  • Tickets cost is TBD.
  • Utilize the Detroit People Mover right from the International Auto Show 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.  There is already a line at 9:00 a.m. but you will enjoy the show more without the insane crowds by 2:00 p.m.
  • There are lots of restrooms at the show.
  • Coat check is available for around $4 per coat...have cash. 
  • Right next to the coat check is a shop that has breakfast, drinks and lunch items.
  • Lots of places to purchase water, snacks and drinks inside the auto show. 
  • Plan to spend about 3 hours at the show so you can enjoy it all. 


Detroit International Auto Show Accessibility

1 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI 48226

Do you have accessibility needs?  3 years ago we had a wheelchair (snowmobiling mishap!) so we learned a lot about accessibility challenges. 

  1. Accessibility access starts at 8:00 am.  This is an outstanding perk.  So be sure to arrive early so you have a chance to see the show before it becomes flooded with people.  We found this invaluable.  
  2. You can rent motorized mobility chairs for around $35.  No need to push a wheelchair around!
  3. We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel because you can take the Detroit People Mover to Huntington Place.  No need to move your vehicle!  
  4. Uber-you can easily get around the city with Uber, just be sure to request the XL vehicle.  
  5. If you choose to push 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. I know, because I pushed a wheelchair all day.   
  6. Restrooms in Huntington Place are ADA compliant.

Don't Miss MotorBella! 

If you love inventive auto shows, be sure to attend Detroit's MotorBella this year!
