Coolest Car Show

Featuring food, children’s activities, a raffle, and of course, the shiny chrome and polished fenders of classic cars—the 21st Annual Coolest Car Show is designed as a festival for the whole family to enjoy. This year’s event takes place on Thursday, July 4th from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Estes Park Event Center, located at Stanley Fairgrounds.

Admission to the Coolest Car Show is only $8 for adults, or $5 for young people ages 6 to 17. Children five and under attend free. Tickets will be on sale that day inside the lobby.

Spanning both the Event Center and next-door Pavilion, the Coolest Car Show features rows and rows of classic and vintage vehicles—everything from early models to today’s state-of-the-art electrics. There will be local car owners from Estes Park and many more from throughout Colorado, plus many from out-of-state.

Whether it’s your first time exhibiting your specialty car, or if your vehicle is a returning favorite, auto exhibitors may pre-register now through June 29. Registration forms may be found at For more information about registration and sponsorship opportunities, call 303-475-7152.

The Coolest Car Show is family-friendly festival, with special activities for kids and a photo booth. Food will be available for purchase, and a beer truck will be on site.

Tickets will also be on sale that day for the July 4 Big Bang Concert, featuring the internationally-acclaimed Face Vocal Band, which will be performing in Estes Park that evening at the Estes Park Fairgrounds. For more information about the evening concert or advance ticket purchases, visit
