Parking & Admissions

Packard Proving Grounds Historic Site 49965 Van Dyke Ave, Shelby Twp, MI

At Van Dyke Ave. and 22 1/2 mile, turn west onto N Proving Grounds Blvd. Drive and proceed through the gate. The event is in the first two buildings on your right and in the courtyard between them. Free parking is available on the grass on either side of both boulevards and special needs parking is on the right near the entrance. Make sure to pull well off driveways and walkways, to keep them clear for traffic. Please park close to adjacent vehicles. Walk to the courtyard entrance between the buildings. 

If you purchased advance tickets, your name will be on the admission list. Enter using the Pre-Registered line, skipping Ticket Sales lines. If available, have your printed or mobile tickets ready for display.  If paying at the door, admission is $10. Credit cards (MC & Visa) are accepted, but cash payment and correct change will greatly speed your entry. All ticket holders will receive a numbered wrist band as well as $3 in food concessions vouchers. 

Check out the program stage/schedule first, to insure you don't miss an interesting presentation or performance.  Upon entry to the exhibit hall, advance ticket holders should check at the INFO table to see if they won a door prize. 

Packard Proving Grounds

A site rich in Detroit’s 
automotive history. 

Established in 1927 by The Packard Motor Car Company, this unique site hosts multiple Albert Kahn designed buildings, located on 14 acres. It’s a lovely venue for weddings, car shows, plus corporate & social events. Event venue proceeds go to the Packard Motor Car Foundation and help with the restoration of the grounds.
