Celebrate Father’s Day at one of the oldest car shows in America, the 57th Annual Classic, Antique & Collector Car Show at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. Our Father’s Day tradition will feature 432 classic, antique and collector cars manufactured between 1896 and 1978.   This year, we're celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang --a name that is truly and proudly American.  Featured in the Inner Circle are pristine examples of classic cars from 1935-1939. Discover new cars destined for greatness at the Future Classics display and stop by the Fast Lane to see the latest products and services for every car enthusiast.

  • New this year! Hagerty Youth Judging allows ten lucky children, aged 6-14, the opportunity to learn the basics of judging and get up close to some of the wonderful cars at the show.

Youth Judging will begin at 12:30 and will take approximately 2 hours. Pre-registration is mandatory.
