The recently-debuted 2016 Chevy Camaro is continuing its tour of America and–for the next leg of its journey–will be heading back home to Detroit. After showing its redesigned face at the All-Star Game in Cincinnati and the Brickyard 400 in Indy, the all-new Camaro is preparing for an appearance at the 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest single-day car enthusiast event, annually drawing over 1.5 million auto aficionados from around the world. This is the fifth year Chevrolet has sponsored the event, and the bowtie brand has announced it will have displays in several key locations along the famed Woodward Avenue, spread over several days.

The biggest draw will be the all-new 2016 Chevy Camaro coupe and convertible, which will both be part of Chevrolet’s lineup display at the junction of Woodward Ave. and Old Woodward Ave. in Birmingham, Michigan. The display will be open from 9am until 9pm on the official day of the Cruise, Saturday, August 15th, and will also feature the new 2016 Volt, as well as a coupe and convertible version of the 1955 Bel Air, in celebration of the classic car’s 60th anniversary.

Camaro fans will also enjoy the “Camaro Corral” at the Pleasant Ridge City Hall at 23925 Woodward Ave., which will start at 8am on Saturday. The Chevy-sponsored event will feature up to 150 Camaros owned by Camaro Club members.

GM Design will also host the sixth annual Design on Woodward car show at the Northwood Plaza today, August 12th, from 1pm to 8pm. The event will feature over 100 vehicles personally owned by members of the GM Design team. Tomorrow, the Chevrolet Performance booth will open, showcasing vehicles hot off the 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour.

Yesterday, Chevy held a Volt Silent Cruise at 7pm in the evening, allowing Volt owners to silently cruise their electric vehicles along Woodward Ave. Attendees were also able to see the 2016 Volt in person and speak with GM engineers and marketers about the new model.

    Never noticed until now all the creases in the hood, grill, splitter area. I’m sure they are at least functional in theory. But that seems like, while cool now, the kind of look that in 10 years seems incredibly dated. Like the Mustang slapping those big dorky circle headlights smack dab in the middle of the grill in 2005.
