About this event

Highlands Motoring Festival’s® centerpiece event, Cars in the Park classic car show, occurs on Saturday, June 11, at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park, just steps from Main Street.  The Featured Marque for 2022 is Porsche.  Organizers expect 80 total entrants and more than 2,500 visitors on show day.  Entry is by invitation only, either directly or through application. “Cars in the Park” focuses on autos from the pre-computer car era; the model years prior to 1990.  Applications for invitation for 2022 will be available on this website, in November 2021.  

Previous year’s shows have featured such diverse cars as pre-war and brass era classics and race cars, BMW M1 and 328, Ferrari 166MM, Bugatti Type 35, Indy cars, rare muscle cars, and a corral of original Shelbys and Cobras.
