Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix Event in Detroit

Car lovers and families can rev up for some exciting entertainment as this high-speed event returns to southeast Michigan May 30-June 1, 2014

Hop in your cars and head to the 2014 Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix event in Detroit! The zippy family fun is back and, this year, kicks off on Friday with Comerica Free Prix Day, where admission is – you guessed it – totally free of charge.

The event spans May 30-June 1, 2014. Bring the entire family and take a walk down the riverfront to watch professional auto races and practices, along with BMX extreme sports demos. Make sure to spend some time listening to live music and participating in the monster truck rides and special kids' fun-zone activities, too.

Have those cameras ready to snap some pics, as well, because your kids also get a chance to enjoy interactive games and displays, including a few from Detroit's favorite sports teams. Find appearances from local sports stars throughout the weekend, too.

And come with a hefty appetite! Food and beverage options abound.

Event hours are as follows:

  • Friday: 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. (Comerica Bank Free Prix Day)
  • Saturday: 7:15 a.m.-7:45 p.m.
  • Sunday: 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

Tickets costs are free/Friday – and, on Saturday and Sunday, regular admission is $35-$65/adults and free/kids 12 and under with an adult. There is also a $10 parking fee with a free shuttle to and from the island.
