What began as a humble meeting between car lovers is now the largest monthly car show in the nation. From there it grew into a TV show and got picked up by a major network - NBC Universal. Now, the TV show is going international and being broadcasted in 28 different countries worldwide. It's Caffeine and Octane, and it's unlike any other event you've ever seen before.
What is it?
This nationally recognized show brings car enthusiasts from all over for a family-friendly automotive exhibit. Each show regularly draws over 2,500 vintage, muscle, high performance, and exotic cars while also attracting over 10,000 spectators. The show highlights all makes and models, from the immortalized classics to seductive foreign cars that are almost too pretty to touch.
Looking to stay all weekend? Whether visiting with family, friends or that special someone, go beyond the Car Show with our Speed Itineraries. Once the show is over, be sure to stop into any of the surrounding restaurants and stores we have to offer before leaving town!
How to see it:
The car show runs from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., however, the parking lot is known to fill up by 7:30 on most mornings so you'll definitely want to rev up your engine and head to Dunwoody early for this one-of-a-kind event. And no registration is required - just show up early and find a coveted parking space in the mall parking lot. For more about what to expect, check out our Pit Stop Q&A.
