Coolest Car Show

The Fourth of July in Estes Park will once again serve as the dazzling backdrop to shiny chrome, tail fins, polished fenders, and Americana-themed nostalgia. The 21st Annual Coolest Car Show takes place on Wednesday, 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 specialty vehicles—everything from vintage cards to today’s state-of-the-art electrics. There will be local car owners from Estes Park and many more from throughout Colorado, as many from out-of-state.

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.

In addition to the abundant parking available at the Events Center on July 4, Estes Park Trolleys will transport show-goers from the Municipal Building downtown to the Event Center at the Fairgrounds and back.

The Museum Friends thank the many sponsors that are making this year’s event possible: State Farm Insurance, Mama Rose’s Restaurant, Poppys Pizza & Grill, the Estes Park News, the Estes Park Trail Gazette, Bank of Colorado, the Ore Cart Rock Shop, Brownfield’s Souvenirs and Outdoor Gear, iii Image Enhancement, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Cheley Colorado Camps, Tour Estes Park, Hobert Office Services, the Bank of Estes Park, Big O Tires, U.S. Bank, and Sweet Basilico Italian Cuisine. Thanks also goes to the Town of Estes Park Special Events Department, the Estes Park Car Club, and the many volunteers who will be giving a portion of their Fourth of July to staff the event.
