The Woodbury Lions Club is presenting their Annual Car Show and Summerfest on June 4, 2023 at Hollow Park in Woodbury, CT, which is expected to attract over three hundred of the finest classic cars in the Northeast, and over a thousand spectators.
“We’ve grown over the years,” said Lion Clifford Ritter, the co-chairperson of the event. “It’s more of a festival now, and a great family event with a little something for everyone.”
Besides twenty-two classes of cars for judging, the event will have music all day, with popular “yacht rock” band Anchor Management performing at 11:30am and 1pm. Music and announcements will be broadcast on 88.5 FM
The show will have games for kids, and a vendor area. There is still room for a few vendors, especially those who sell automobile-related wares. Sorry, but no food product vendors can be accepted. Space is $25 for a 10’x10’ area. You can download a registration form here and bring it with you on the day of the show. Vendor set up time is 7:30 to 9am.
Yes, there will be food trucks: Snowden’s Barbecue and El Bori, with the Bethlehem Lions Club selling hot dogs, hamburgers and fries. Finish off with some ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s Catering, and Reverie Brewing Co. will be on hand with their craft beer. Be aware that the trucks only accept cash as payment.
The Car Show is the kickoff of sales for our Duck Race Raffle. Tickets will be available for $5 per duck, or $50 for a book of ten tickets. As in past years, the top prize is $1000 cash, with ten other prizes of both cash and gift certificates to local businesses.
Cars can begin to enter for judging at 9 a.m., with the first three hundred entries receiving a free dashboard plaque, with general admission beginning at 10 a.m. Admission price is $20 per car, $10 per walk-in, and free for children five. Judging begins at Noon, with trophies presented at 3 p.m. Save time and purchase your tickets in advance at carshow.woodburyctlions.org
The Lions use the proceeds from the car show, as well as from their Haunted Hayride, their golf tournament, and their recent Maifest, to award scholarships to graduating Nonnewaug High School seniors. The Woodbury Lions also supports many other organizations, including the Connecticut Eye Research Foundation, the Connecticut Lion Low Vision Centers, the Woodbury Community Services Council, and Connecticut Hospice.
