The British are coming!

The British are coming! That’s right, the Autolawn Party will celebrate all the wonderfully beautiful British classics at this year’s 4th Annual Event. Of course, the show is open to all European makes/models, so get those registrations in early.

For any newcomers, The Autolawn Party is an exciting, community event scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, September 10th on the SALT Block lawn in Hickory next to its beneficiary, The 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. Awards will be given in a small number of peer-judged classifications and select categories.
