29th Annual Benicia Classic Car Show

With the likes of Elvis and Chubby Checkers singing in the background, and a sea of chrome that seems to go on forever, you know you have arrived at the Benicia Classic Car Show.

The 29th Annual Benicia Classic Car Show will draw classic car enthusiasts from all over the Bay Area.

Some will be attending as spectators who want to check out the unique and rare vehicles, others go to connect with fellow car buffs. Whatever the reason, it will be a day of fun that includes vendors, a silent auction, prizes and music reflective of the many decades represented by the classic cars as well as live music from Benicia High School band. Show plaques will be awarded for numerous categories, voted on by other entrants.

The show takes place on the First Street Green and lower First Street.

The event presents pre-1989 American made cars and trucks – there will be about 400 vehicles on display and over 5,000 spectators. Also included are a beer and wine garden area, food and merchandise vendor area where you can purchase custom printed T-shirts and sweatshirts, and BHS bands playing during the day. 

Presented by the award winning Benicia High School Marching Band Boosters, this event is their biggest fundraiser. The show raises money to support the high school marching band and color guard, as well as jazz and concert music programs. Car show attendees are invited to enjoy downtown’s many retail shops and restaurants.

The family-oriented event is free and open to the public.

Sunday, April 21st, from 9AM to 3PM.
