Get Ready! Get set! Downtown Alameda’s 22nd Annual Classic Car Show takes place on Saturday, October 10. The free one-day event runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm and is fun for everyone.
Cars of every description will line up along Park Street, from Encinal Ave to Buena Vista Ave — antique roadsters, coupes, hot rods, muscle cars, and much more. Entertainment and prizes will be available and DJs will be spinning oldies from the ’50s and the ’60s.
Enjoy over 400 classic vehicles on display as you meander through Alameda’s historic downtown district. Most of the cars come from the magical decades of the ’50s and the ’60s. You can also expect to see plenty of muscle cars from the ’70s, along with vintage beauties from the ’30s and ’40s.
The Wounded Warrior Project will have a booth to sell raffle tickets for a drawing being held on January 1, 2016. The grand prize is a 50th anniversary Shelby Cobra. You’ll find the Wounded Warrior booth and car located in front of Capone’s Speakeasy.
Downtown Alameda’s Annual Classic Car Show is one of the best car shows in the Bay Area. A national representative of the Mustang Club of America has described the Downtown Alameda Classic Car Show as “the best that he has ever seen.”
We’d like to thank our organizers for their incredible dedication to the show. Downtown Alameda’s Annual Classic Car Show is hosted by the Crankers Car Club each year and is sponsored in part by Lee Auto Supply (1525 Park Street), Alameda Collision Repair (1911 Park Street), and Ole’s Waffle Shop (1507 Park Street) . Without their help, this annual event would never get off the ground.
Pre-registration for Downtown Alameda’s Classic Car Show is currently closed but a handful of spots usually become available on the day of the show. These spots are re-assigned on a first-come basis. To get on the wait list, you’ll need to check in at the corner of Park Street and Lincoln Ave at 7:00am. The event is open to 1976 and older cars, trucks, and classics.
