About The Autolawn

The Autolawn Party is an exciting, community event scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, September 11, 2021 on the SALT Block lawn in Hickory next to its beneficiary, Hickory Museum of Art. The Autolawn Party is an outdoor celebration of the road’s number one traveler – the automobile. The car show will look a little different this year to keep everyone safe and healthy. Cars will be spaced further apart on the lawn to allow for social distancing and hand sanitizing stations will be available in various convenient locations.

The celebration is centered around a European classic car show for the automotive enthusiast, but it’s far more than that. There’s something fun for everyone. Events include the car show, food, art exhibits, children’s activities, music, beer garden, merchandise for sale, raffle prizes, a ride and drive, and awards ceremonies. The event is open to the public, and there is no charge for spectators, who can also vote for their favorite classic car.

The Autolawn European Classic Car Show is unique for its size and scale in having only 80 entrants. The intention is to provide a wide range of high-quality, original vehicles in an intimate yet informal setting, without the pressure of traditional Concours events. Each year this event will highlight a different region or brand. Awards will be given in a small number of peer-judged classifications and select categories.

Early Registration is Now Open!

Register now to be a part of The Autolawn Party 2021 on Saturday, September 11, 2021. All European makes/models are welcome. And remember, early registration has it’s benefits – reduced wait time day of event, and lower registration fees.

This year’s theme features the roadster. A roadster (also known as spider, spyder) is defined as an open two-seat car with emphasis on sporting appearance or character. Initially an American term for a two-seat car with no weather protection, usage has evolved to include two-seat convertibles. Traditionally, The Autolawn Euro Classic Car Show has limited vehicle participation exclusively to European models. However, in recognition of the spirit of the roadster, some American roadster models will be featured in this year’s car show. If you have a roadster that you would like us to consider, please contact Event Co-Director, Charlie Zagaroli by email at theautolawn@gmail.com.
