About The Autolawn

Hickory Museum of Art is excited to announce its 11th Annual Autolawn Party, Saturday, October 5, 2024. The Autolawn Party is an outdoor celebration of the road’s number one traveler – the automobile.

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, children’s activities, music, beer garden, merchandise for sale 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 Concourse 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.
