Northwood University Sets Date For 51st Annual International Auto Show

Annual event will take place Oct. 10-12.


MIDLAND, Mich. – Northwood University’s 51st Annual International Auto Show is set for the weekend of Oct. 10-12. The show is North America’s largest student-run outdoor new car auto show and is held on the Michigan Campus of Northwood University located in Midland.

The theme for this year’s show is “Take the Wheel,” focusing on connecting consumers to their vehicles.

The Auto Show is free of charge and open to the public, and will offer a variety of displays and exhibits throughout the campus in addition to food, information and entertainment.

The General Chair for this year’s show is junior Kristin Hammond from Alma, Mich. She and the 14-member executive board, in addition to more than 600 other students, will be involved in creating the show, which attracted approximately 60,000 visitors last year. It is held during Northwood University’s homecoming weekend during the peak of the fall color season on the heavily wooded campus. This year’s show will feature more than 500 new cars, trucks, semis, recreational, specialty and promotional vehicles, plus an extensive aftermarket exhibit.
