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.

UPDATED:

This event is in the spirit of the old Dairy Queen Cruise-In in Madison. If you loved that event, you'll love this one—same atmosphere, same vibe, same fun, and even more food choices.

Please enter from the front on the ramp over the sidewalk in front of The Brickhouse AFTER 5 PM (please allow the staff time to set up for the event). We will have some signs posted and cones placed to help aid with parking. Once the front lawn is full we will start parking on the rear lot. If that area fills up please find a parking spot around the grass.



The goal of this meet is to provide a fun family friendly environment. ALL CARS ARE WELCOME and parking will be FIRST COME FIRST SERVE however we do reserve the right to save a few spots for select cars.

Thanks again for everyones continued support and thanks a ton to everyone that helps make this event a success.

Like the old DQ event, this event is rain or shine and year round. See you there!

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:

got a couple of the old DQ vette crowd out there last time...we'll try again for more..Not sure many of the newer members of VWVCO have DQ knowledge but maybe over time some of the older ones that do will spread the word.

Thank you for helping getting the old crowd back out. I'd like to see Rocket City Mustang return to the event as well.

Big thanks to Anothny this month for all the help. He's really picked up the slack since I've just been really tied up this month.

I plan to be there around 5 like last time to make sure everything gets rolling. Hopefully with the rain today it won't be as dusty as last time.

A big thanks to him, yourself, and everyone that's helped keep this moving. I hate that life has knocked me hard and robbed most of my time, but hopefully I'll be through my struggles by the end of this year.

The word is getting around, but it can always use some help. I'm stopping by there today to talk to Mellow Mushroom and Tony's to see what they plan to do for a discount. Once those are finalized, I'll make revised version of the flyer for us to distribute.

Not a problem guys. One inevitable truth is that life will get in the way sometimes. I'm happy to help out where and when I can. I'm shooting to be there around 5 again as well.

Sounds like a good idea on the new flyers promoting the food discounts.

Better late than never

Just spoke with a fellow lotustalk member who's in town from Germany for a month. I let him know about this event and HCS.com so hopefully he'll join.

Sweet!

Mellow Mushroom just agreed to a 15% discount. . So they join Sweet Cici's who give us 10%. I'm waiting to hear back from Moe's and about to go to Tony's.

According to his son, he has agreed to a 10% discount. He said he will have fliers printed up and handing them out at the meet..........your call on if you want to double check.
