The First Wednesday Meet/Cruise-in
Calendar: Events Calendar

May 1st to December 31st 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Village of Providence, 7 Town Center Dr, Huntsville, AL 35806
Contact: Call/text Samir 615-512-5520 www.huntsvillecarscene.com



This is a meet. This is a cruise-in. This is just a good time hanging out and talking with your friends and fellow enthusiasts while perusing the cars that have come out. If you remember the old Dairy Queen Meet/Cruise-in in Madison from years past, this event is a reboot of that. It is a family-friendly environment with plenty to eat so bring your kids.

This event is for every enthusiast in the area, young or old, for any enthusiast vehicle new or old, fast or slow, on road or off, 2-wheeled or 4. There is no registration fee, no door prizes or anything like that. Just a good time with fellow enthusiasts.

This event is held in conjunction with the Village of Providence, who graciously permits enthusiast vehicles to park on their grassy park at the center of Providence, surface permitting. When the ground may not be able to support the weight of vehicles, the parking spots adjacent to the park will be used. Parking notifications will be posted here on Huntsville Car Scene.com. This event is rain or shine and year round, just like DQ used to be.

The entrance for the grass field is behind the grass field. There is a small gravel road leading from the pavement. Follow the signs with arrows at the stop sign at Brickhouse. And if you're unsure, feel free to ask someone or contact me directly at 615-512-5520. I may not be able to answer calls immediately the day of the event due to volume, so feel free to call me in advance and I'll explain exactly where to go.

And just like DQ, there are discounts on food at the following restaurants:
  • Mellow Mushroom - 15%
  • Moe's Original BBQ - free banana pudding
  • Sweet Cici's - 20%
  • Tony's Little Italy - 10%
And if you want a meal for free, just stop by at Huntsville Car Scene supporter Liberty Mutual Insurance in Providence for a free quote on your auto and home insurance, and they'll send you a gift card for dinner at your restaurant of choice in Providence. Just have your proof of insurance and ID.

Come out and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Providence in your favorite ride. See you all there!

Here's a great detailed 3D map of the parking areas by gorkoracing:

You'll see us on the field. The music from the patio party makes it hard to be in that area and talk.

As long as the grounds are solid and dry, we're good to go.

There's only a 20% chance of rain, basically it's just that time of year for pop up showers.

That's the idea. I would imagine the majority of people will be there at this time, I would imagine after 9 the group will start to get smaller.

Several people have been meeting at providence for the past 2-3 months but this is the first time we've been given permission to use the grass and really promote this event. In the past it's lasted about 6-9 unofficially as people have left to be with family or get some sleep for work the next day. Theres always been people staying a little later. The last one I didnt leave until about 10:15 or so and there was still a small group left.

Traditionally, the DQ events started around 6-ish and ended when the last person went home. This was sometimes midnight or later as the great conversations don't stop.

Officially, the event starts at 6pm and ends at 9pm. But as we get a feel for it, we'll adjust as needed.

Sweet! Thank you Beck!

I just got off the phone with Providence and the gravel dip is filled in, flyers are up at all the businesses in Providence, signage is waiting for me to pick up, and everything is falling into place.
