Almost a month ago, it was announced that Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge was returning for 2021 after a year off due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Roadkill Nights is an automotive festival with all sorts of horsepower themed attractions, including Dodge thrill rides in a Hellcat Challenger or Charger, a massive display of new and classic cars, custom vehicles from the Roadkill show, food trucks and – most significantly – legal street racing on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue.
When the 2021 show was officially announced, registration was not open, but early this morning, tickets went on sale for everyone except for racers, so if you plan to attend to watch or to show off your vehicle, you can secure your tickets today.
Update #1! Racer registration is now open! Click here for more details.
Roadkill Nights 2021 Tickets
Right now, there are six ticket options, including the Ultimate Package, the Roadkill Fan Package, the Cruise-In, the Cruise-In for Dodge Owners, the Reserved Seating pass and the Early Bird Special.
If you are reading this and you have a Dodge vehicle that you would like to show off, but not race, the Cruise-In for Dodge Owners is your ticket, but you want to act quickly. As has been the case in past years, Dodge owners can show their cars for free, but those free spaces are limited, so you need to sign up pretty much as soon as you read this. If you don’t get one of the free Cruise-In tickets, you can still buy one for $125, which is what all of the non-Dodge “show cars” will pay. Click here if you are only really concerned about getting your free Dodge show pass right away.
Update #2 – It appears as though the free Dodge Cruise-In tickets are sold out.
If you just want to get into the Roadkill show, see the sights and experience the event, the Early Bird Special is for you. For $20, you can get general admission to the event, which will cost you $25 at the gate, so you can save $5 by getting your tickets ahead of time.
If you want to attend Roadkill and you want a seat in the grandstands along Woodward Ave, giving you the best look at the street racing program, you will want to also add the $55 Reserved Seating Ares ticket. The General Admission gets you in the gate, but you don’t get a seat in the stands without the special, $55 pass. If you are taking a child under 12, admission is free, but a seat in the stands for the child will cost you $25.
Finally, the Roadkill Fan Package and the Ultimate Package take the experience to the next level. The Roadkill Fan Package is $70 and it comes with one general admission ticket and a Roadkill Nights gift bag which includes a shirt, a pin and a “sticker package”. The Ultimate Package is $350 and it starts with the general admission ticket and the gift bag of the Roadkill Fan Package, but it also comes with a pair of VIP Fast Passes for the Dodge Thrill Rides, VIP seating, VIP restrooms, VIP parking and a celebrity meet-and-greet with some not-yet-announced celebrities from the event. In most cases, the meet-and-greet is with the hosts of the Roadkill show, but with so many celebrities involved with the event each year, that may change for 2021.
