Cold Spring Classic and Antique Car Show

Saturday's show will feature antique vehicles from the Jersey Cape Auto Club, and Sunday will focus on hot-rods and other classics presented by Gary McGhee.

Historic Cold Spring Village will present its annual Classic and Antique Car Show Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 12-13.

Cars will be on display 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-2:45 p.m. Sunday.

The event will showcase restored and preserved vehicles from the 1910s to the 1980s. The vehicles — everything from from muscle cars to light trucks — will be parked along the tree-lined, shell-paved lanes throughout the village.

Visitors are welcome to converse with the owners and learn about the process of restoring a classic automobile and some of the fascinating stories behind their development and use.

Saturday's show will feature antique vehicles from members of the Jersey Cape Auto Club, and Sunday will focus on hot-rods and other classics presented by Gary McGhee, who has presented vintage car shows and auctions in the Wildwoods.

Registration for car owners begins 8 a.m.

The village’s historic buildings will be open during regular museum hours, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 

Historic Cold Spring Village is a nonprofit, open-air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American period. It features 27 restored historic structures on a 30-acre site that include the Country Store, the village Bakery, Ice Cream Parlor and Cold Spring Grange Restaurant.

Tuesday through Sunday from late June to early September, historically clothed interpreters and artisans preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” Fun and educational activities for children are featured, with special events every weekend through September.

After the car show comes Paranormal Weekend Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19-20, when visitors can explore the village's supernatural side.  

The village is at 720 Route 9 in the Cold Spring section of Lower Township. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for children age 3 to 12 and free for children under 3. Unlimited free admission is available with village membership. The Village Nature Trail at Bradner’s Run is open for free self-guided tours.
