52ND ANNUAL ANTIQUE AUTO DAYS
7/16 and 7/17/2016
9:30 AM - 2:00 PM
See dozens of classic, vintage, antique, hot rods, muscle cars and much more all parked on the Village Green. It’s a true all makes and models show in partnership with the Maine Obsolete Auto League! A Swap Meet & Flea Market will offer collectors a chance to scoop up a deal. Sunday afternoon parade through downtown Boothbay Harbor. Valve cover racing is back this year. Visitors can build their own and bring it along to test it out on the track. MOALS members and others will also demonstrate their creations. Valve cover racing is a competitive event similar to the Pinewood derby, but vehicles are made from a valve cover from an internal combustion car engine, rather than of wood blocks. This hot new hobby for auto enthusiasts is fun for all ages.
Anyone who owns a classic, antique, hot rod, muscle car, rat rod or other cool vehicle is invited to show it off on the Village Green on July 16 & 17. If you are not a member of MOALS there is just a small $5 entry fee upon arrival, no pre-registration required. Car owners receive free admission to the Museum and a commemorative dash plaque. A People’s Choice trophy will also be awarded!!
Live music on both days!
While at Antique Auto Days don’t miss Rails, Tails, & Ales: The Midcoast Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, July 16 from Noon – 4:00. Tickets for a wristband to enjoy ten – 4 ounce beer tastings is just $35 (must be 21) and include Museum admission (Antique Auto Days) as well as a unique souvenir beer mug.
A food court will include everything from cheeseburgers to pork BBQ and from wood-fired pizza to ice cream.
The traditional Sunday afternoon parade through downtown Boothbay Harbor will depart the Museum grounds at 2 PM. Guests are encouraged to come see the show before that time as many of the cars head directly for home after the parade.
