3 Automotive Events in Ann Arbor (July 14-15)


This is a great weekend to be in Ann Arbor as a car enthusiast.   There are three major events which you can enjoy on both Friday and Saturday.

Informal Gathering (tbd):  Friday, July 14

We are working on setting up an informal gathering for those that want to get together on Friday evening. In a normal year, Ann Arbor Rolling Sculpture would have taken place however we’ve been informed due to construction on Main St, they will skip 2023. With that in mind, we are going to setup something informal for those that want to gather (likely at some local brewery or food/drink venue). Stay tuned for more information….   

Details: Stay tuned for more information. FYI – cost to attend Porsches in the Park 2023 does not include Friday evening gathering.

Ann Arbor Cars & Coffee:  Saturday, July 15 (7:30 – 9:00am)

This is the 11th year of the Ann Arbor Cars and Coffee season which is held at Zingerman’s Roadhouse on Jackson Rd just west of downtown.    This event started with a bunch of the local Rally Sport Region Porsche Club members and now has some 175+ cars each month.   It meets on the 3rd Saturday of every month and there is always great people and fantastic coffee and breakfast. https://www.facebook.com/AnnArborCarsAndCoffee

Porsches in the Park 2023:  Saturday, July 15 (1:30 – 8ish pm) 

We will bring together some 150+ Porsches to German Park which is just north of downtown Ann Arbor.   We’ve invited all of Zone 4 Porsche Club of America to attend and are hopeful to see some of our closest Porsche friends in attendance.    The event will have a number of activities including drives, car judging, a BBQ dinner, music, dancing and some great people to enjoy your evening with.   


Agenda for Porsches in the Park

The Porsches in the Park begins with drives at 1:30 pm on Saturday, July 15th.     The event takes place at German Park which is located about 5 miles north of Ann Arbor.

    • Tour through the Country:   Enjoy a group tour through the rolling countryside of Washtenaw and Livingston counties.   The tours will be staggered and group different paces of drives.
