Astoria Park Alliance is excited to host this brand new Father’s Day event along the East River. The community is invited to walk down Shore Boulevard aka “The Strip” exploring dozens of classic cars from around the region. Park-goers of all ages are encouraged to meet the car owners and learn more about their vehicles.
Food and craft vendors will stretch along Shore Blvd., accompanied by live music and family activities. Classic car owners will have their vehicles professionally judged in a variety of categories, with trophy presentations on stage to conclude the event.
Award winning singer-songwriter D.B. Rielly will be featured on the main stage. Rielly and his band will perform two sets of their wide-ranging collection of American roots music, including zydeco, blues, and country.
Featured vendors that include The Breakfast Shack, Bench Flour Bakers, Astor Apiaries and HellGate Farm will offer refreshments as well as last minute Father’s Day gifts.
Astoria Park, with its gorgeous views of Manhattan, has a long history of being a magnet for car and motorcycle enthusiasts. Walk the strip on any given day and you are likely to run into proud vehicle owners parked along the riverside showing off their rides and enjoying the view. The Father’s Day Classic Car Show aims to embrace the past, while looking to the future.
Participating classic cars will enter the site for registration prior to the event from the corner of Ditmars Boulevard and Shore Boulevard. While the event is free to the public there is a $15 entry fee for each vehicle. Car owners interested in entering their vehicles in the Father’s Day Classic Car Show are encouraged to contact Astoria Park Alliance by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The car show is made possible with sponsorship support from Old Astoria Neighborhood Association.
Attendees are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook and/or Eventbrite.
