Best Car Shows - Page 3


Some of the best car shows are those you find on the way to the hardware store or drug store. Always when you don't have a lot of time it seems. Life is funny that way. But if you like old or classic cars then you will always find time to stop and browse and remember when we all drove some of those cars or trucks. Maybe bikes! Snow mobiles, boats, and not to forget planes. Like the EAA in Oshkosh each year is really just a huge plane show I guess. I think they have a car show their too. Well here are some suggestions other readers have sent to us. Im sure one or two must be near your turf. Let us know if we can share any car shows in your area. Other car lovers will appreciate that! You can reach us at info@gbepackaging.com We always suggest that you call before attending any community events to make sure they aren’t postponed or canceled as a result of the coronavirus.

The Elegance at Hershey

Hershey PA - Mid June

At this time, no future events are planned. Thank you for your past support!

Hershey, Pennsylvania, may be well-known for chocolate, but it is also the host of a mid-June Concours event featuring some of the most beautiful vehicles of a bygone era. The vintage race is one of its signature events. A weekend celebration of a bygone era when the automobile stirred our imaginations and quickened our hearts. Plan your trip to allow time to take in Hersheypark, too. The festivities commence with The Grand Ascent, a vintage hill climb exhibition in the European tradition, where drivers pilot some of the finest historic race cars up the historic back road to The Hotel Hershey®. Modeled on similar events such as England’s Goodwood, and paying homage to ongoing events such as Mount Equinox and Pikes Peak, The Grand Ascent appeals to enthusiasts and curious spectators alike. Sanctioned by the Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA), the two-day hill climb event includes a sponsor /vendor area for marketing to participants and the general public.

Released Statement
After nine years of presenting a world class concours weekend, The Elegance at Hershey Board of Directors, announced on Facebook yesterday that the event will take a hiatus in 2020. Since its inception, the event — held at the historic Hotel Hershey in Hershey, Pa. — has raised over million for three benefitting charities: Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum and the AACA Library and Research Center.

Board chair Michael Rich, son of the event’s founder, explained in the letter below that “From day one, we have been guided by the principle that if we could not make a substantial difference to our charities that there would be no reason to exist.”

According to vice chairman Steve Moskowitz, a successful year would have to net at least 0,000 for the charities.

In an interview with ClassicCars.Com Journal, Moskowitz explained, “… it wouldn’t be ethical for us to put on a big party and then donate just a little money.”

The Elegance at Hershey was more than a car show. The 3-day weekend began on Friday with The Grand Ascent, a revival of the Hershey Hill Climb, which flourished from 1958 until the 1970s on a wooded service road owned by the hotel. The Ascent featured vintage race cars and continued on Saturday. On Sunday, there was the concours d’elegance that featured about 70 of the finest collector cars. Other activities included a Kick-off Cocktail Party, Cars & Coffee, Gala Dinner & Auction, VIP breakfast and lunch, the Awards Ceremony and a final reception called the Elegance Afterglow.

The Board has not ruled out a continuation of the event in future years.
