North American Auto Show

COBO Center
1 Washington Blvd.
Detroit, MI 48226
(248) 643-0250

Locals know of it as the Detroit Auto Show, but the annual event of all things new in the car world is known by a different name. A key car event for consumers, manufacturers, dealers and everyone inbetween, the North American International Auto Show brings all aspects of the auto industry to one place. One of the largest media events in North America, 5,000 journalists are expected to attend.


The area around Cobo will be hopping, but there are plenty of secure lots available to stash your own ride while you check out your dream cars of the future.

The Food

The latest addition to dining options is the Detroit Made Kitchen food shops in the Cobo Atrium including local favorites including dill pickle soup, kielbasa, pierogi, Detroit coneys, burgers and fries featuring local brands and vendors like Kowalski sausage, Chophouse Grind beef and Lagrasso Brothers produce. Even Mayor Duggan was impressed.

Last year, in the Cobo Center lobby, a healthier options food stand was installed including nutritious salads and sandwiches. Learn more.
