THE OC FAIR & EVENT CENTER TAPPED TO HOST THE CLASSIC AUTO SHOW MARCH 16-17, 2019
(Los Angeles, CA) – The third annual Classic Auto Show (CAS) will return to Southern California March 16-17, 2019 at the OC Fair & Event Center. Now in its third year and a brand new location, the event will be poised to create a classic car festival in a new condensed two-day format which will attract over 1800 classics and 80 car clubs from all areas of Southern California including as far south as San Diego.
Many of the events tried and tested features of the show will remain including the popular Grand Boulevard, the shows “Concours d’ Elegance,” which will provide show-goers with a stunning display of the finest and rarest classic and historic vehicles from all eras. The show’s Celebrity Stage will continue to feature well-known celebrities in the automotive world, including fan-favorite Dave Kindig, host of Bitchin’ Rides on the Velocity / Motor Trend Network. The show will build and enhance its hands-on demo stages focused on Restoration and Auto Detailing for SoCal gearheads.
For attendees looking for the latest parts, products, and services for their classic vehicles, the show will also have a dedicated marketplace with more than 200 exhibitors and sponsors including cash ‘n carry exhibitors offering memorabilia / collector items. The large outdoor facility will give the show a chance to build out a larger Auto Swap for those hard to find parts.
“We are thrilled with the move to the OC Fair & Event Center which will allow us to evolve The Classic Auto Show into a true festival experience for classic car enthusiasts,” said SVP, Mike Carlucci. “Our attendees wanted to see more cars, vendors, hands-on demos, interactive features, food and entertainment, however our old venue was physically limiting us to build those types of experiences. The new venue gives us the flexibility and space to do everything our fans our asking for,” continued Carlucci.
