Venue Directions & Parking

At Van Dyke Ave. near 22 1/2 mile, turn west onto N Proving Grounds Blvd. and follow directions to public or preferred parking (advance tickets).  Stop as directed to pay for $5 parking pass or show your advance purchased pass. You'll be directed to the appropriate parking lot. Make sure to pull all the way up to ropes/fences and out of driveways, to keep them clear for traffic. Please park close to adjacent vehicles. Walk off the roadways, through the gate, and to the courtyard entrance between the buildings on your right. 

Admissions & Activities Areas
The event is in the first two buildings and in the courtyard between them. Admission is free and open to all ages. The middle building houses the exhibit hall with 50+ gift vendors. The east-most building offers concessions and dining, Santa's visiting and family photo areas, and craft-making tables. The courtyard between the buildings includes live entertainment, outdoor concessions, bonfire and more. Carriage rides start and end on the boulevard outside the courtyard entrance. A ticket booth for rides and petting farm is available inside the exhibit hall. Credit cards are accepted, but cash payment and correct change will speed your purchase.   

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.
