What’s New

DeutscheMarques

DeutscheMarques returns to the Gilmore Car Museum on Saturday, July 10. This is not a PCA event and it does overlap with Parade, unfortunately. On the other hand, it is a great show of German car manufacturer prowess. The major marques – Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, and Volkswagen will all have separate display areas. This is a “bring it and show it” event. The event runs from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Cars entering the show arrive beginning at 8:00 AM. The gate closes at noon. A $16.00 entry fee covers the car, driver and one passenger – 50% less than two $16.00 general admission museum tickets. Entry fees entirely support the Gilmore Car Museum and the entire museum will be open to exploreGerman food, beer and wine and other delicious fare will be available during the event. A strolling German Oom-pah Band will add to the festivities. The event is fun for the entire family. You can find more information about the event here.

WHEN: Saturday, July 10
WHERE: Gilmore Car Museum, 6865 W Hickory Rd, Hickory Corners, MI 49060
