Eureka Springs Antique Auto Festival

The 49th Annual Eureka Springs Chamber Antique Auto Festival in Eureka Springs, Arkansas will be held on September 6th & 7th, 2019.

The annual Eureka Springs Antique Automobile Festival, September 6th & 7th, 2019, celebrates its 49th year continuing with our new, larger venue: the Great Passion Play. Set against the Ozarks’ spectacular autumnal colors, this premier event is the longest running car show in the Ozarks, featuring hundreds of restored classics, hot rods, street machines, customs, rat rods, muscle cars and rare trucks, all competing for more than 25 judged awards.

Enjoy free admission, music, vendor displays, food trucks, gift shop, art museum and Passion Play restaurants. The awards ceremony is followed by the traditional Parade of Show Cars, traveling through historic downtown Eureka Springs.
With the support of the Ford Galaxie Club of America, private collectors and regional car clubs, event organizers expect record turnout in this year. The new Passion Play venue provides wonderful photo ops, housing the largest Christ statue in the US, a section of the famed Berlin Wall, a world-class art museumtrolley service to downtown Eureka Springs and plenty of free parking. RV/camp sites and vendor display space available.
