"Down on Main Street" Car Show
Saturday, August 12, 2023
This year, the Clawson Lions Club celebrates the 25th anniversary of its "Down on Main Street" Car Show on Saturday, August 12, 2023 -- one week before the world famous Woodward "Dream Cruise." Acres of chrome, wild paint jobs and roaring exhausts will dazzle your eyes and rattle your brain as the "Motown Monsters" take over downtown Clawson, Michigan.
We expect more than 8,000 car owners and visitors to come by and check out more than 400 entries ranging from antiques to street rods, muscle cars, trucks, boats, choppers, antique campers and bicycles. The Show will stretch for a half mile from 14 Mile south on Main Street to the City limits. Admission to see the Show is FREE and open to the public. And while you're taking in the sights, enjoy some great food and sweet deals offered by the local shops and street vendors. "Where's Clawson?" you ask. Here's a map.
The "Down on Main Street" Car Show is the centerpiece of the Clawson Lions Club's yearlong fundraising efforts to benefit local charities. As always, all proceeds from the Show will go to Leader Dogs for the Blind, Eversight Michigan, Beaumont Silent Children, the Penrickton Center for Blind Children in Taylor and other charities and projects throughout the year.

Putting on a car show is a huge operation.

Participating in the car show as a sponsor is a great way to support the charitable work of the Lions Club and gain incredible visibility with a huge crowd of car buffs.
