Although the first auto show in Detroit was held in 1907, the 2008 show, renamed the North American International Auto Show in 1989, will be our 20th international show. Back in 1907, it only cost 50 cents to attend the show. The first car to be shown at the auto show was the Ford Model T and President Dwight Eisenhower became the first U.S. president to attend the auto show in 1961.
The auto show has been held in a number of locations, including the Michigan State Fairgrounds, the Detroit Artillery Armory, with the first show held in 1907 at Beller’s Beer Garden at Riverside Park on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, in conjunction with a hunting and fishing accessories show. The show has been held at Cobo Center since 1965.
