Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise

The Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise is the biggest and best event on Gratiot Avenue. This summertime tradition is an opportunity to showcase our community to neighboring residents, and visitors from across the State and Midwest. With almost 250,000 in attendance the cruise has continually increased each year in attendance, classic cars, family activities, and business involvement year after year.

Cruise Formally Canceled due to COVID-19 Pandemic:

On June 22, 2020, the Clinton Township Board advised the Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise Committee that they would not be able to hold the Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise as we have done in the past due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an effort to not totally abandon all of the people and businesses that have supported us in the past the Clinton Township Cruise Committee has come up with the following plan for a "Casual Cruise."
The Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise will sponsor informal events such as Pre-Cruise Car Shows and Car Show at our Cruise Headquarters  at 16 Mile and Gratiot on the day of the cruise .
The six pre Cruise Car Shows will be hosted at local bars and restaurants starting Monday, July 13th.  The car shows and locations are as follows:
  • Wednesday, July 8th - Alibi Inn
  • Monday, July 13th – Fern Hill Golf Club
  • Wednesday, July 15th – Hennessey’s Pub + Kitchen
  • Friday, July 24th – Gratiot Pub
  • Tuesday, July 28th – Freddy’s Bar & Grill
Please plan on attending and supporting these businesses as they have suffered through some tough economic times.
Also don't forget about the Car Show the day of the "Casual Cruise" at our Cruise Headquarters location at 16 Mile and Gratiot.  There will be limited capacity for the Car Show on Sunday August 2nd. due to social distancing.  Those interested in registering for the Car Show the day of the cruise are encouraged to do so soon as space is limited.  A Casual Cruising along Gratiot Avenue will be allowed.  More information on these events will be forthcoming.
Thank you,
The Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise Committee
