One of New England’s largest classic car shows, the annual Stowe Antique and Classic Car Meet, celebrates 57 years as Vermont’s largest and oldest collector vehicle event by showcasing classic and antique cars, trucks, street rods, military vehicles and more.
Located at Nichols Field on Rt. 100 in Stowe, this year’s three-day meet is August 8 through 10, and will feature over 700 registered show vehicles, a huge flea market and car corral where collector cars are grouped for sale. The “Stowe Show,” as it’s commonly referred to, is known for its variety of antique cars. Show cars start with those of the Brass Era (pre-1915) through the classics of the 20’s and 30’s, with many post war vehicles from the 50’s, through muscle cars of the 60’s and 70’s.
Don’t miss the special display honoring the classic “woodie” wagons, sedans and convertibles.
The show opens on Friday, August 8th with show cars, the car corral and flea market, where just about anything related to the collector car hobby can be found.
Saturday features a fashion judging contest, parade of show vehicles through downtown Stowe, and an oldies street dance from 7 to 10 p.m. turning Main St. into a “Happy Days” scene.
Sunday, all show vehicles are on Nichols Field for the judges to inspect and choose the top three for each of the 45 show classes. Early afternoon will see the presentation of awards for all classes plus special awards for the President’s Choice, Best of Show, Canadian Award and more.
Back by popular demand at the show is a Crafter’s Tent where Vermont arts and crafts will be showcased and for sale.
Show hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $10, seniors (60+) $8, children 12 and under free.
