Classic Car Festival on Father's Day in Colonial Beach

2024 Fathers Day Car Show Flyer

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.

Classic Car Show

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.

Food vendors and a DJ on hand for tunes and there are lots of goodies for Dads as well as drivers. Vendors can set up an arts and crafts booth, or sell food.

Trophies are usually awarded for:

  • Best in Show
  • Best Classic Chevy
  • Best Classic Mopar
  • Best Classic Corvette
  • Best Classic AMC
  • Best Classic Import
  • Best Classic American
  • Best Classic Truck
  • People's Choice Award
  • Top 40 Classics (40 trophies!) The Colonial Beach Cruisers cars will be exempt from the judging.
  • This event has been going on for a number of years!
