The 48th annual Eureka Springs Antique Automobile Festival is scheduled for September 7th and 8th, 2018, at The Great Passion Play. Come to Eureka Springs for all the great classic cars and attractions like music, food, a car parade, and more!
2018 marks the 48th return of the Eureka Springs Antique Automobile Festival, NW Arkansas’ longest running car show. The festival, supported by the Ford Galaxie Club of America, private collectors, and regional car clubs, is expected to draw a record turnout this year.
The annual event draws hundreds of restored classic cars and trucks, hot rods, street machines, muscle cars, and other rare vehicles. The event is once again being held at Eureka Springs Great Passion Play with trolley service to downtown Eureka Springs and plenty of free parking.
This year’s attractions include a sunset cruise, classic car parade, and a scheduled “Bank Robbery” on Saturday, after the car parade. A panel of professional judges will preside over awards in over 30 different categories. These include Best of Show, Best Engine, Best Paint, and Best Interior.
This year sees two new events added to the Antique Auto Festival: Valve Cover Racing and Best Costume Contest. Valve Cover Racing sees contestants racing modified valve covers like at a pinewood derby – great fun. The Best Costume Contest gives you a chance to dress outrageously for fun door prizes, trophies, and bragging rights.
