Automotion 2016  -  May 21 & 22, 2016


For those who would like to go back to when cars were made out of cars



Muscle Car. Pony Car. Trailer Queen. Land Yacht. Antique vs. Vintage vs. Classic. Lead Sled. Drophead.

Familiar with any of those terms?

If yes, you're probably already a fan of Automotion and we look forward to welcoming you back. If no, make plans to drive to the Dells the weekend of May 21-22, 2016 to learn the lingo from some of the most passionate car folks this side of the Mississippi, a passion that often runs in the family. Some 1,200 classic rides will fill the parking lot at Noah's Ark Waterpark in Wisconsin Dells. There will be live music and food, a car parade, car corral, swap meet and awards presentation too.

"Hollywood on Broadway" keeps the Automotion fun going from 5:00pm - 9:00pm on Saturday night when iconic Hollywood cars, such as the General Lee, Kitt and the Smokey & the Bandit, the Back to the Future DeLorean and the Mystery Machine go on display downtown Wisconsin Dells. Get your camera ready and head downtown for a chance to photograph these stars of steel.
