The oldest and grandest car show in North Orange County hosts Hot Rods and a Concours d’Elegance, with the true classics of the automotive industry spread out over eight acres of lawns. While enjoying the cars, feast on fabulous food and special brews from Bootlegger’s Brewery. Don’t miss our special musical performances in the outdoor amphitheater. Proceeds benefit the Muckenthaler’s youth arts education programs.
