Last year's classic car festival saw record 283 entries! Some cars even had to be turned away due to lack of space. Here's a video of the June 18, 2023 event.
The Classic Car Festival on Town Hill starting at 8 a.m. and lasting until 3:00 p.m., for cars, light trucks and rat rods. This is a rain or shine event. No admission charge for general public. $15 early registration for vehicles, $20 day of show. Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and the Colonial Rod Club.
If you've never been, this is a must-see event in Colonial Beach. Not to mention it's a great way to spend Father's Day with your pop and see some sharp-looking vehicles.
There will be classic cars all over Town Hill beginning at 8 a.m. Don't get there late, as I did one year. I missed all the fun. It ends at 3:00 p.m.
