Saturday September 16th 9:00am - 4:00pm

If four wheels are your passion, the 15th annual Shades of Autumn Antique, Classic and Custom Car Show is an adventure that will accelerate your heart beat. This is one automotive competition that you can take in on two feet. On Saturday, September 16th, Downtown Huntsville BIA will join forces with the Historical Automobile Society of Canada to close Main Street and fill it with 300 show cars. The BIA is thrilled to have The Garage / MBRP back as the show sponsor. Last year’s event saw downtown Huntsville full of colour with over 300 cars lined along Main Street – and this year is sure not to disappoint. Car owners drive across Ontario (and even out-of-province) to attend this free event. Seventeen trophies are up for grabs this year to be presented for various categories The 2017 awards are sponsored by numerous car dealerships and businesses in Downtown and the surrounding area. The coveted People’s Choice Award is once again donated by Treasures & Trophies. All visitors downtown are invited to vote between 9 pm and 3 pm on their favourite vehicle. People’s choice ballots available during the show at most downtown retailers. Winners will be announced at 3:30pm.

The event opens to the public from 9 am to 4 pm. Ladies get out your poodle skirts, guys slick back your hard and pull out those blue suede shoes, and start dance in the street as the Swingin’ Black Jacks pour their live music onto the street. The Charity Bake sale is back to partner with the car show. All non-profit organizations are invited to join our event with a bake sale table for free – but interested non-profits are asked to pre-register by calling the Downtown Huntsville BIA at 789-1400. This is an excellent opportunity for all charities to be in the public spot and raise some funds for really great causes.

There is no pre-registration for car participants in this event, but cars will be parked on a first come first serve basis beginning at 7:00 am. Notice to all that Main Street will close, from Brunel to Centre, to vehicle traffic at 6:00 am, so it can open for the Antique, Classic, and Custom Car Show. It will not be reopening until after 4:00 pm. So mark the date September 16, and come enjoy downtown as the traffic is stopped by classic cars, tuners, hot rods, classic trucks, and so much more.
