The Stowe Show celebrates 57th year

One of New England’s largest Classic Car Shows, the annual Stowe Antique and Classic Car Meet, celebrates 57 years as Vermont’s largest and oldest collector vehicle event by showcasing classic and antique cars, trucks, street rods, military vehicles, and more. Located at Nichols Field on Rt. 100 in Stowe, this year’s three-day meet is Aug. 8 through 10 and will feature over 700 registered show vehicles, a huge flea market, and car corral where collector cars are grouped for sale. The “Stowe Show,” as it’s commonly referred to, is known for its variety of antique cars. Show cars start with those of the Brass Era (pre 1915) through the Classics of the 20s and 30s with many post war vehicles from the 50s through muscle cars of the 60s and 70s.
Don’t miss the special display honoring the classic “Woodie” wagons, sedans, and convertibles.
The show opens on Friday, Aug.8 with Show cars, the car corral, and flea market where just about anything related to the collector car hobby can be found. Saturday features a fashion judging contest, parade of show vehicles through downtown Stowe, and an oldies street dance from 7 to 10pm turning Main St. into a “Happy Days” scene.
On Sunday all show vehicles will be on Nichols Field for the judges to inspect and choose the top three for each of the 45 show classes. Early afternoon will see the presentation of awards for all classes plus special awards for the President’s Choice, Best of Show, Canadian Award, and more.
Show hours are 8am to 6pm on Friday and Saturday and 8am to 4pm on Sunday. Admission is $10pp, seniors (60+) $8, children 12 and under free.
