Each year, THE COOLEST CAR SHOW IN COLORADO draws Antique, Vintage, Classic, and Alternative Fuel Cars — as well as car buffs, car clubs, vacationing families, visitors, and friends to the mountain gateway town of Estes Park.

The Car Show, which raises funds for the Estes Park Museum, is held at the Estes Park Event Center at Stanley Fairgrounds, located just off US 36, south of the downtown.

A full day of family fun, the Show offers live folk and rock n roll music, free children’s crafts and games, a silent auction, Estes Park Photo Booth, a caricature artist, and much more.
