The Mother of All Car Shows in Pismo Beach
Dads are notoriously hard to buy for… but they’re not hard to please. Any red-blooded man can appreciate the allure of the Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show. Held annually on Father’s Day weekend in Pismo Beach, the 28th celebration of this event will take place on June 14 – 16, 2013. A day at the car show is a perfect way to say, “Happy Father’s Day!”
Rev Your Engines in Pismo Beach
One of the largest spectator car events in California, and one of the most respected and well-known shows nationwide, the Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show draws over 175,000 car enthusiasts and curious guests to downtown Pismo Beach and the famous Pismo Pier.
More than 1,000 show vehicles are on display at this free event, which highlights cars of all makes, models, and years. Some of these machines are the likes of what you believe you can only see on television or in movies – from roadsters to pick-ups, muscle cars to street rods, this is the place to see them in all their shining glory.
Deliciously Classic Car Show and Then Some
The Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show isn’t all about engines and chrome, however. There’s a diversion to suit every attendee. Over 130 vendors of all types and treasures will be on display at the car show. Some visitors may want to indulge in some shopping in downtown Pismo while the car aficionados lose themselves among the engines and hubcaps.
Looking for refreshment? Quench your thirst, and quell your gambling bug, by taking part in the Classic’s Poker Run self-guided wine tour. Stop in at the many wineries surrounding Pismo Beach to collect your hand and compete to win a cash prize. Don’t forget to stop by the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel in Pismo Beach along the way. We are a poker run participant as a bonus card stop!
The Thursday night Gala Event will take place at the Hot Rod Bar & Grill Tent near the Pier Lot. This fundraiser will feature the tasty eats of local Pismo restaurants, such as Splash Café, Marie Callender’s, Chele’s Food & Spirits, and Chipwrecked, and includes a charity auction and fashion show. The Surf & Turf Gourmet Dinner is available Friday or Saturday night and spotlights lobster, steak, and all the trimmings, plus live entertainment.
