The event, a fan favorite of car enthusiasts, is hosted in conjunction with the Packard Motor Car Foundation. This year's Packards & Pints event will raise money for restoring the main gates and repainting the historic water tower.

Along with a chance to sample dozens of craft beers, wines, and cocktails, guests will be able to tour all of the original buildings designed by Albert Kahn including the original testing garage, and view the foundation’s private collection of Packard cars. Back in the day, the 500-acre testing grounds were used for the most luxurious cars sold. The Packard Proving Grounds now finds itself on the National Register of Historic Places.

Tickets start at just $50 for General Admission. and $65 for VIP Early Admission.  The event will also feature a live DJ with great music as well as food available for purchase. There is also special pricing for Classic Car owners wishing to showcase their vehicles.
