Celebrate July 4th in Estes Park at The Coolest Car Show in Colorado!

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.
Although there is plenty of free parking at the Event Center, a free trolley also brings visitors from downtown to the Event Center and back.

The Show is open to the public from 10:00-4:00, with prizes in 16 car categories and best in show awarded at 3:00 p.m. Admission: $5 adult, $2.50 for children over 6.

Contact Millie at if you or your car club
would like to receive email updates from us.
Hope to see you on the 4th!!
