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.
