The Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association (BSBPA) and Saratoga Automobile Museum (SAM) are pleased to present the 15th Annual “The Way We Were” Car Show on Sunday, October 8, 2017 on Front Street in historic Ballston Spa. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your business, your products and/or your services. All proceeds will benefit BSBPA community efforts. Rain date for this event will be Sunday, October 15, 2017.
This year, the BSBPA is once again partnering with the wonderful group of dedicated automobile enthusiasts from the Saratoga Automobile Museum. We will again have a dedicated “Kids Zone” that will include opportunities for vendors to promote and showcase their products and services to kids.
Last year’s event attracted approximately 500 registered cars and thousands of spectators to our Village. This year we will have live music, displays and performances throughout the day along with all the other car show related events. We are encouraging all Village businesses to be open and to participate!
The vendor cost for a 10’x10’ show spot is $35 for current BSBPA members and $60 for non-members. A 10’x 20’ spot is $60 or members and $125 for non-members. (Please go HERE to learn about BSBPA membership and join today!) Please use the vendor application below. There will be no charge for vendors who are already sponsoring this event.

The BSBPA is always looking to promote our members and community groups whenever possible at this and all our events. If any of our food service businesses would like to set up along the show route or in front of their establishment, please contact us as soon as possible so we may reserve a space for you. Vendors will be placed along the show route in areas where food is needed. Unfortunately, we will not be able to take any requests for specific vendor locations. If you plan on setting up in front of your business or as a vendor, we will need to see your menu before assigning your spot so that we do not have similar menu offerings next to each other and we ask that the menu you submit does not change on the day of the show as we are trying to insure a successful event for all our vendors. We ask that vendors be in place no later than 7:30 am, as car show participants start arriving with their vehicles shortly afterwards. Prospective vendors should contact me for available vendor space.
If you are a sponsor or a BSBPA member and would like to set a booth up at the show, we will need to hear from you as soon as possible to assign you a spot. Even if you have participated in the show previously, we need to hear from you that you want to participate again this year.
The BSBPA information table will be set up that day in Wiswall Park and staffed with volunteers. This is a perfect place for BSBPA members to put information regarding your organization, business and services. If you have any type of promotional items you would like us to include in the car show goodie bags, please get them to us by September 30. These bags will be handed out to the first 200 registered vehicles and will be another great way to promote your business. You do not need to provide that number of items; we appreciate whatever amount you can manage. To arrange for pick up of items for goodie bags or BSBPA table, or for further questions on vendor information, please contact Kathi Leigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with all of you on this event!
