My family and I make a weekend of the Automotion show every year. Its a fantastic time to enjoy the Dells.

Is it just classic cars there? or other cars too like tuners or today’s kinda cars

Hi Michael,
There are all sorts of cars at Automotion, and a small amount of tuners. The majority of the cars at the event are classic cars.

only classic cars are able to enter the show but tuners run up and down the streets all day long.

I have a 1991 Gmc pickup can I enter it in show Thank John

Hi John,
Check with the Visitor and Convention Bureau for information on what kind of cars are accepted for entering at Automotion.

registration only allows up to and including 1989 vehicles.

What is Hollywood on Broadway in the evening?

Hollywood on Broadway is from 5pm-9pm during the Saturday of Automotion when iconic Hollywood cars go on display through downtown Wisconsin Dells. Check the Bureau’s website for more information.

Some time ago we sent in our registrations as a group but have not heard anything since.
Will we get a confirmation as to being registered or what is the process.
