"Down on Main Street" Charity Car Show
Saturday, August 10, 2024

With more than 450 entries and a record crowd, last year's 25th Anniversary "Down on Main Street" Charity Car Show will be a tough act to beat! Nonetheless, and always ready for a new challenge, the Clawson Lions Club will host its 26th "Down on Main Street" Charity Car Show on Saturday, August 10, 2024 -- 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 drool over 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. We'll be selling T-shirts, Car Show posters and popcorn at our bright yellow tent. 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.
