You won’t want to miss Historic Downtown Stanton come to life on Saturday from 3:30 to 7:00 p.m. The Car Show has been a main event for SOFD since its start in 1986 with about 50 cars on display. Since then, this event has continued to grow, attracting hundreds of classic cars and trucks to our city each summer. Spectators, both young and old, enjoy strolling Main Street admiring one car after another, picturing their dream car or reminiscing about the past.

Have a vehicle you want to show-off? Registration is from 3:00 to 3:30 P.M. at the intersection of N Court and Main Street. (Important: Follow the official detour route and enter from the north). There is a $20 day-of registration fee or save time & money with $15 pre-registration!. After registration, you will be directed to proceed to your assigned parking spot.

Please note that this is different from previous years. The show is later to give time for the crowd to disperse after the Grand Parade, and registration is immediately before the show, so there will not be a designated area for staging. For registrations after 3:30 P.M., the registration booth will be relocated near the former bank building on Main Street, but you will still be expected to enter at the intersection of N Court and Main Street.

Once parked, each vehicle owner can fold out their lawn chairs, sit back, and chat with the many visitors that pause to admire their entry. Judges will choose the Top 30 from all of the entries and a Best in Show award will be determined by people’s choice. An awards ceremony is expected to take place around 6:30 P.M.

As the show wraps up for the night, car show participants are asked to please remember that safety is our #1 priority as they pull out of town and bid farewell. Burnouts and tire chirping or squealing are prohibited and will be monitored by law enforcement.

For more information, call Brandon Stowell at (989) 287-0871.

Submit & Pay
Online Registration is closed for 2023. In person registration begins at 3:00 PM on Saturday, August 12 on the corner of North Court St and Main Street. Please come in from the North.
