Celebrating the Bon Air Invitational Car Show
More Than 100 Pristine Vintage Cars, Music, Food and Fun for the Entire Family
When: Saturday, October 14th, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
What: The Bon Air Invitational Car Show celebrates vintage American cars with this free, daylong festival showcasing more than 100 vintage American vehicles – classic coupes, roadsters, trucks, and muscle cars from Chevy, Ford, Cadillac, Pontiac, Mercury and more.
This sold-out invitational show has been meticulously and carefully curated by the North Bay Car Committee, a longstanding group of car enthusiasts and Marin residents. Set at the western end of Bon Air’s parking lot under the large oak tree, attendees are invited to stroll the lanes and meet with vehicle owners. Refuel with fun for the whole family; music, food and sidewalk specials along the promenade.
“We have sold-out this invitational-event within the first month for the past 15-years. We feel this is only possible with the enthusiastic support and attendance of the community. We are very much looking forward to celebrating this Marin milestone,” explains organizer and committee member Bob Capurro.
Each year the committee selects a group of new vehicles to keep the show fresh. This year participants are traveling from as far as Idaho, Nevada and Southern California. A history of American cars, each car is in pristine condition thanks to decades of meticulous care and maintenance.
