St Ignace Car Show Parking Options

Shuttle and Off Site Parking:

The car show has free off-site spectator parking with a free shuttle that runs all day during the show on Saturday.

Park at the Mackinac County Airport (1220 N. State St.) and the shuttle will be running from the Airport to the Show Headquarters (Little Bear East Arena) from 7am-7pm on Saturday. It's just a short walk to the show on North State Street.

Park and Walk:

The later you get to the show, the further you will have to walk to the show on North State Street. We were there at about 1:00 pm and parked on E. Truckey Street which is a straight walk to the show. We walked about 4 blocks back to our car with Ace Hardware as our landmark during the show. It's a great half way spot.  

There is not a designated parking lot for the St Ignace Car Show, you will need to park along the streets.

Where To Stay During the St Ignace Car Show Weekend!

Chris and I like to stay at the Best Western Harbour Pointe Lakefront in Saint Ignace, Michigan.  It's right on Lake Huron and they have a nice beach, fire pit, outdoor pool and it's close to Shepler's ferry for Mackinac Island.
