The Autolawn Party

The Autolawn Party is an exciting, new community event scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, September 14th on the SALT Block lawn in Hickory next to its beneficiary, The Hickory Museum of Art. The Autolawn Party is a celebration of the road’s number one traveler – the automobile. The celebration is centered around a European classic car show for the automotive enthusiast, but it’s far more than that. There’s something fun for everyone. Events include the car show, food, art exhibits, children’s trike/bike show, scouts pinewood derby, music, beer garden, merchandise for sale, raffle prizes, a ride and drive, and awards ceremonies. The event is open to the public, and there is no charge for spectators, who can also vote for their favorite classic car and road-inspired artworks.

The Autolawn European Classic Car Show is unique for its size and scale in having only up to 120 entrants. The intention is to provide a wide range of high-quality, original vehicles in an intimate yet informal setting, without the pressure of traditional Concours events. Each year this event will highlight a different brand. This inaugural event will highlight the Porsche brand in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the 911. Awards will be given in a small number of judged classifications and select categories.
