46th Anniversary St. Ignace Car Cruise 2021

June 24 @ 2:00 PM - June 27 @ 5:00 PM

46th Annual St. Ignace Car Show

After many discussions and meetings, and in light of new loosened recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the St. Ignace Visitors Bureau has decided to open up the St. Ignace Car Show weekend to include State Street Closure for Saturday, June 26.

We had originally planned on a modified “Cruise Show” weekend for 2021 during the winter months when the pandemic was still a major concern. This year, we will still host a series of car cruises throughout the Eastern Upper Peninsula on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, along with the Muscle on the Mac Bridge Cruise Saturday night. Thursday’s traditional “Cruise night”, Drive-In movie, and the Down Memory Lane Parade will not return in 2021.

Social distancing and mask-wearing will still be strongly encouraged, despite loosened mandates at the state and federal level. Please be safe, kind, respectful, patient, and use common sense.

Please see a revised schedule below.

Thursday-Friday: packet pickup Thursday 12-5 and Friday 10-5 at St. Ignace Chamber of Commerce


Northern Paradise Cruise leaves Little Bear East Arena at 10 AM


Woodland Dunes Cruise leaves Little Bear East Arena at 10 AM

  1. Friday we arrived in St. Ignace about 11:00am and the weather was nice and sunny. We had to sign in to see where our spot was going to be to set up our canopy and tables. We got lucky and were right by the edge of the road where the cars were cruising. It was a bit breezy and we had a hard time keep the canopy from blowing away. This car show was not a good place for us to sell our products but, was just a flea market. Not what we expected. We did talk to many people that were camaro people and also some mustang people as well as they stop by to see what we had to sell. We made some contacts and we also passed out about 500 flyers for our car show in the cars that were parked for show. Many thanks to the help of one of our members Linda and Ron Kamper! that came to help us out. We did enjoy looking at everything and bought some things for us to install some more lighting. About 5pm we closed up for the day and we walked down the to the edge of town to see what the town had to offer. We grab a bite to eat and as we were starting to walked back and people were sitting on the edge of the road waiting for the parade to start at 7pm. We sat in front of our vendor spot and watched the parade which lasted about an hour and that ended the day for us. Saturday we found a spot to park our Camaro’s and cleaned them up for people to look at and also to be judged. We could’nt park by our vendor spot because we did’nt get there at 6am like everyone else did and there was already many cars there. Some of the cars left that were parked by our vendor spot on the main street and we moved our cars in those spots. There was about 650 cars that were parked down the street from the I75 all the way around the hook as the up pers call it. The juding was at 4pm and we knew we were not going to win but, just being there was enough for us. We seen a friend that was selling neon clocks and signs and license plate holders etc.. We that ended our day for Saturday and next year we will not be selling anything but, will be coming just to bring our Camaro’s. Until next year! Cheers!!!

  2. Friday we arrived in St. Ignace about 3:00pm and the weather was nice and sunny. It was suppose to rain but it went south. We checked into our hotel that we were staying at. We then cruise downtown St. Ignace like everyone else was. We found B.C. Pizza and stop to get some pizza. The pizza was pretty good. As the day went on we sat by the road at our hotel and watched people doing burn-outs. Then they stopped because the car parade was going to start. It lasted for about 45mins and after that was all done they went back at it all night long doing burn-outs again. The weather was still warm and it cooled down a bit. The next day we the weather was going to be nice again and started to head down to where everyone was parking their cars and we found a great sport by everything. The person playing the music was putting us to sleep because he was playing music like Debbie Boone etc. You know what I mean. Later he started to play better music and as he was making announcements he was so monotone it was awful! We spoke to many people and we made some contacts and sold a few of our products. We also passed out about 800 flyers for our car show in the cars that were parked for show. We walked the whole street in the heat that day. We were asking the locals where was a good place to eat in town and everyone said that the mexican place Jose Cantina was very good. So we thought let’s try it. Well, we have been to many mexican restaurants before and this one was so awful! from the salsa and the food. Way too expensive for what we got. We ended walk-out with a $50 bill for me and my wife. The whole place is run by Asian people and not mexican people. No fenced to the Asian people but, we had a feeling that it was not going to be good. We then we back to our hotel and watched the fireworks. Until next year! Cheers!!!
