We are delighted to be back “together again” in downtown Ballston Spa! “We invite the public to come stroll our historic village, check out the hundreds of cars and trucks on display, and enjoy the live music, vendors and downtown businesses. It’s a great day for the whole family.

Front Street will be blocked off from Milton Avenue past the Old Iron Springs to accommodate car exhibits and vendors. In addition to food and merchandise vendors, the show will again feature a “Kids Zone”, located by the Old Iron Springs, which will feature free children’s activities.

The car show is a judged event and several trophies will be awarded, including Best of Show, Mayor’s Choice, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Stock, Oldest Vehicle plus the top 3 in specified categories. Judging begins at 9 am with trophies awarded at 3:30 pm. The event is free to spectators.  Exhibitors can pre-register by September 30, 2021 for $15 per car or $20 the day of show.
