58th Annual Show Offers Free, Family-Friendly Fun

Rockville’s 58th annual Antique and Classic Car Show returns to the Rockville Civic Center Park from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19.

The free show – one of the oldest and the largest in the mid-Atlantic region – will feature more than 500 vehicles, a car-related flea market, a car sales area, live music and a moon bounce. Croydon Creek Nature Center will be open to visitors.

The hills of Rockville Civic Center Park, home to the historic Glenview Mansion at 603 Edmonston Drive, offer a picturesque fall setting for a stroll through a lineup of vehicles from 32 car clubs, from Packard and Plymouth to Fiat and Ferrari.

The show is the premier nonjudged motor vehicle show in the region, offering the chance to share memories of classic cars of yesteryear. The theme of this year’s show is “The 9s,” featuring models from the last year of each decade from 1889-2019.

Parking will be available at Rockville Civic Center Park, with overflow parking at Rockville High School, 2100 Baltimore Road. A courtesy shuttle will run between the school and the show from 10:30 a.m.-4 p.m. For inclement weather updates, please call 240-314-5022.

Car owners can register their vehicle until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16. After that, owners must register on the day of the event. To show or sell a car at the show, host a flea market booth, or learn more, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/carshow, call 240-314-8620 or email specialevents@rockvillemd.gov.
