About The Autolawn

The Autolawn Party is an exciting, community event scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, September 12, 2020 on the SALT Block lawn in Hickory next to its beneficiary, Hickory Museum of Art. The Autolawn Party is a 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, 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.

It’s Happening!

We’re excited to announce that Porsche of Hickory and Paramount Automotive Group have signed on as Presenting Sponsors once again for our 8th Annual Autolawn Euro Classic Car Show on Saturday, September 12! The car show will look a little different this year to keep everyone safe and healthy. However, everything you’ve come to love about the event — amazing cars, great food, beer garden, etc., — will still be onsite!

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 Car Show has limited vehicle participation exclusively to European models. However, in recognition of the spirit of the roadster, American roadster models are allowed to participate in this year’s car show.
