Antique and Classic Car Show returns to Stowe Aug. 9

The annual Stowe Antique and Classic Car Meet celebrates 56 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 3-day meet is Aug. 9 through 11 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 20s and 30s with many post war vehicles from the 50s through muscle cars of the 60s and 70s.

Don’t miss special event showcasing 1953 model year cars and trucks.

The show opens on Friday Aug. 9 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 pm 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 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 am to 6 pm on Friday and Saturday and 8 am to 4 pm on Sunday. Admission is $10 per person, with seniors (60 and over) $8 and children 12-and-under free.
