*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Village of Providence, 7 Town Center Dr, Huntsville, AL 35806

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!

Meh, I could have done that, but fortunately the clothes I'm wearing today are quite comfortable.

Great show - great crowd. Thank you to all the guys that help put this on and organize it. Saw a little bit of everything out there tonight. If you didn't see something you liked then I don't know where you would

Thank you everyone for a very successful re-launch of the old 'DQ' we all used to know and love. I asked several people what they thought about the event and I was blown away by how positive it was. DQ is back!

I want to personally thank everyone that helped organize, promote, spearhead, and make this event possible. As Cody said to me right before he headed out--it was a group effort. And the results are amazing and something to be proud of. I love this type of stuff and is why I created this site in the first place--to help make events like this possible.

This is a monthly event, rain or shine (except parking on the grass during bad ground conditions), and all year 'round. Tell your friends and help get the word out to the clubs which didn't get a chance to come to this event.

I'm going to follow up with the developer of Providence about the economic impact. I'm thinking it's going to be pretty good. And if so, I'm going to see what we can do about getting some discounts during the event. Which in turn should just make it all the bigger.

Some minor issues do need to be worked out such as optimal parking as well as trash/cig butts. I'm sure if the park is filled with litter at the end of each event, this will be short lived. I think the parking will come with time, and I look forward to meeting everyone again next month.

My buddy Larry came out and shot some of the cars before his battery ran out, so check out his pics!

Great time, thanks so much for the hard work you guys put into this. I know I asked the folks at Sweet Ceces if the meet was having a beneficial impact on them and the manager said with a huge smile "ABSOLUTELY!" I went in there around 8pm to get some yogurt and they were just about out of cups!

Will look forward to next month!

You know he did. I assume it may take him a little longer than normal to get these up since there were so many cars.

This was an awesome meet/cruise-in! So many cars and good people. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to all of you who set this up and got it going!

Glad everything worked out as well as it did. I was pretty nervous but all went well. The only thing we've got to fix is to make sure no trash is left behind, but I think that's an issue we can fix.

I had a great time as well and think it worked out pretty dang good. I'm very interested to hear the economic impact to the restaurants. I heard at one point there was a pretty big line at Moe's so people started going over to Mellow Mushroom. I ate at MM and they were packed and our waitress was running around all over the place.

Here's some photos my friend Jason took while out there. He's currently looking for a female model with tattoos/piercings for an upcoming photoshoot



These pics were taken with his iphone but he had his Nikkon out there too so i'll try to post up a link to those pics when he gets them ready
