With Covid cases on the decrease and vaccinations on the rise, we’re finally beginning to see many automotive events return. Among them is the annual 3-day Corvette bender leading up to the Woodward Dream Cruise known as Corvettes on Woodward. Naturally, both the Dream Cruise and Corvettes on Woodward were canceled last year due to the pandemic.
Plans are still coming together, but here’s what we know so far thanks to an email from organizer, Larry Courtney. Things get underway at 10am on Wednesday, August 18th with a tour of the GM Heritage Center. From there it’s off to the DoubleTree Hotel on Woodward Avenue for Corvettes on Woodward’s main event – the charity drive and cruise supporting the Open Hands Food Pantry in nearby Royal Oak. For 2021, Corvettes on Woodward is moving back to where it all started after several years at alternate locations. Admission for this event is just a $10 donation plus any nonperishable food. Food and beverages for your consumption will be available for purchase. They’ll also have a DJ and some other activities to be announced later.
Thursday, August 19th will kick off at 10am at the famous Lingenfelter Collection. Afterward, many attendees gather at the Moose Preserve restaurant, a Woodward Avenue staple. A tour of the Stahl’s Automotive museum usually takes place later that evening.
On Friday the 20th organizers are looking into a track day at the nearby Waterford Hills road course. Even more tours are in the works as well and fingers are crossed that they can formally be added to the itinerary soon. Other potential metro-Detroit destinations include: Katech Engineering, the Detroit Parade Company, Weber’s Wildlife Museum, and the Henry Ford Museum.
After that it’s time to cruise world-famous Woodward Avenue for the Dream Cruise on Saturday, August 21st.
Hopefully we can keep the coronavirus at bay and get back to our usual Corvette fun. Planning ahead for Corvette events like this is just one more sign that things might be starting to return to normal.
