Car show posterThe Autos and Oysters Car Show, premiering on Saturday, November 14, 2015, will showcase the cars of local collectors and will also attract enthusiasts from throughout the region. Antique and classic Porsche, Triumph, MG, Alfa Romeo, Rolls Royce, Mustang, Camaro, and Mopar models, among others, will be on display.  Several car clubs from throughout the tri-state area have expressed interest in attending.

With a sock hop on the City Docks on Friday night featuring local refreshments, music, and oysters, and the car show taking place on Saturday, it promises to be a fun, family-friendly weekend for all.

Package deals offered by lodging providers and restaurants will encourage visitors to stay, dine, and shop. All deals are valid November 13-14, 2015. Check back weekly, as more of our local businesses are signing up as word gets out!

This  is one of Historic Apalachicola Main Street’s initiatives to draw people downtown to stimulate the economy.  The Sock Hop will be held at Riverfront Park, and the Car Show will be held on Water Street. Both events are free and open to the public. Click here for a flyer.
