Frankenmuth Car Show
The annual Frankenmuth car show, called Auto Fest, is held in Heritage Park on Weiss Street and showcases nearly 3,000 classic cars. The weekend event occurs in early September and is kicked off with a street party on the Friday night. You can enjoy the party and then view the classic cars on both Saturday and Sunday. For 2013, the Frankenmuth car show will be held from September 6th to 8th.
For visitors coming from out of state, there is much more to do in Frankenmuth than the car show. If you are coming in for the cars, be sure to experience the other activities that the city has to offer. Frankenmuth is famous for its taste of German, especially Bavarian, culture. This “Little Bavaria” is home to authentic German restaurants and shops, as well as a brewery, historic sites, a riverboat, carriage rides, and other family-friendly activities.
The Frankenmuth car show is one of the town’s biggest and most fun annual events. It begins with the block party at 5:00 on Friday as the classic cars roll into town and take up their positions for the weekend. You can enjoy live bands at the Friday party and throughout the weekend. Bands play Saturday night until midnight. Expect to hear plenty of oldies and be prepared to dance.
Restaurant and stores open their doors to invite customers to enjoy their specialties while viewing the classic cars. When attending the Frankenmuth car show, you can start your day with a pancake breakfast at the Heritage Park Lion Haus. In addition to viewing the cars over the course of the weekend, you can enjoy the arts, crafts, and other products provided by vendors.
The Frankenmuth car show culminates in an awards ceremony on Sunday during which authentic German beer steins are given away to lucky participants. If you have a car to show, registration is inexpensive and the money goes to charitable organizations. Registered car owners also have the chance to win prize money in daily drawings. Whether you are an appreciator of classic cars, or you have your own collectible to show, the Frankenmuth car show is a fun event for everyone.
