While Detroit might be Motor City, Grand Rapids certainly has played its part in making auto history and this weekend the city will take center stage as the location of the Michigan International Auto Show.

The 20th Michigan International Auto Show takes place Thursday, Feb. 1 – Sunday, Feb. 4 at DeVos Place, 303 Monroe St NE.

Attendees have the opportunity to not only view hundreds of new vehicles but to actually sit in them as well. Who knows, you might walk away sold on your next new vehicle.

Admission: $12 adults, $5 children aged six to 14, and kids five and under are admitted free.

Charity Dinner

A sneak peek charity dinner benefitting the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is also being held on Jan. 31 from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. as part of the Michigan International Auto Show.

Enjoy a strolling dinner prepared by the culinary team at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, including a sushi, sliders, a HopCat Crack Fry bar and more along with coffee and desserts.

This sneak peek event has raised more than $1.7 million over the past two decades.
