The 69th annual Detroit Autorama, originally scheduled for March 5–7, 2021, has been postponed until April 30–May 2 at Detroit’s TCF Center.
The Michigan Hot Rod Association has not released an official announcement, but after the information was shared on its Facebook page, the site’s administrator posted an image of animated TV character Homer Simpson clutching his head and exclaiming “D’oh!”
“Oopsie…. Well we may have spilled the beans a little early!” the post says. “There will be an Autorama announcement with the updated show days and times within the next couple days. Stay tuned for more info.”
Championship Auto Shows Incorporated (CASI) updated the Autorama website with the new date. No explanation for the change was given, but we can assume that the postponement was due to uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
In a comment on Facebook, Hotrod Hotline’s John Sanderson says CASI will be “printing new entry applications to reflect the new date. The current show entry applications (showing March 5–7, 2021) are still being accepted. Anyone who has already submitted an application is being notified of the new show date.”
The first day of the show will be Friday, April 30, 2021 from noon until 10 p.m. The TCF Center was formally known as Cobo Center.
