The event, a fan favorite of car enthusiasts, is hosted in conjunction with the Packard Motor Car Foundation as a fundraiser for the restoration of the main gates and the repainting of 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.
