BMW M Fall Cruise


What started out as a 15-car event has now become the premiere BMW M event in the northeast for Fall.

Please sign up here


The event starts in Edgewater, NJ:

555 River Rd, Edgewater, NJ 07020

Then, we cruise up the Palisades Parkway towards Haverstraw, NY, ending at the park here:

Haverstraw Bay Park, 21 Gagan Rd, Haverstraw, NY 10927

I’ve reserved the park for us there.

Date and Time?

Sunday, October 22, 2023.

Please arrive at Edgewater at 6:30 AM. We will depart at 7 AM sharp! Roads have been getting more and more clogged up, and I’d like everyone to enjoy.

What’s the route?

Right here: Be sure to take the Palisades Parkway route.

Is this just for M cars?

All M and regular Series BMWs are welcome.

Do you take pics?


I can’t make it to Edgewater, can I meet you at Haverstraw?


Is the event free?


Why do you do this?

This began eight years ago as a way for me and a few M3 friends to enjoy the cars before putting them away for winter. The show has been featured in Roundel, and has been supported by the BMW CCA and the BMW Performance Center.

What have past events looked like?

Here’s a recap of all the years.

Here’s the event from 2021.

And the event in 2022.

You’re not that guy, pal

This is a cruise, not a back road attack. You can stay behind me, or go ahead of me, but my car will be cruising at a steady 55-60 mph to film everyone. I won’t be stopping or pulling over to wait for everyone, because trying to keep so many cars together is nearly impossible. Let’s all take our time and enjoy the ride in as many groups as needed.

Once we’re in Haverstraw, everyone must be on their best behavior or we simply won’t be invited back next year. No burnouts, loud music, insane engine revs, etc. It’s a family-friendly show, and the police will know it’s going on.

99% of participants have been very cool, so please don’t be “that guy”.

Please email me at if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you there!
