If it seems like parking is a challenge at the Lincoln City Cultural Center this Saturday, look again. What at first glance might appear to be gridlock on the front lawn is in fact the second annual Old School Classic Car Show, featuring beloved automobiles from all periods of motoring history.
All classic cars dated 1985 or older are welcome at the show, which will run from 10 am to 4 pm on the center’s front lawn this Saturday, Aug. 22.
Car exhibitors will receive a custom dash plaque, goodie bag and continental breakfast. Exhibitors can also get in the running for three prizes: the Chinook Winds Casino Resort Award, the People’s Choice Award and Lincoln City’s 50th Anniversary Award. Kelly Howard, glass artist at Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio, is custom-making glass wave trophies for the event.
The registration fee is $15 in advance, rising to $20 on the day of the show, with proceeds benefiting children’s programming at the cultural center.
Two bands will hit the stage during the show — Lincoln City’s own Retroactive Gamma Rays, from 10 am to noon, followed by Portland instrumental surf band The Verbtones from noon to 2:30 pm.
Food options will include German sausage and corn on the cob served up by the bratwurst brigade from St. James/Santiago Episcopal Church. Enrique’s Authentic Mexican Food will be selling homemade tamales, tacos and burritos. To help cool things off, Pinguinos will offer tasty Italian flavored ice, while Strung out on Beads and Coffee serves up coffee drinks, Shirley Temples, Roy Rogers and homemade Kettlekorn. Rusty Truck Brewing will host a beer garden for guests aged 21 and older.
Various vendors will have booths on the lawn and local artist Chris Wilhelm will be offering airbrush tattoos.
The event will also feature a 50/50 raffle, with great prizes donated by local businesses and half the proceeds going towards children’s programs.
Parking is available at the cultural center and Chinook Winds Casino Resort will offer shuttle service from the casino every hour on the hour starting at 10 am. The Bay City Cruisers from Newport will be on hand to park cars and assist exhibitors.
This event is sponsored by Chinook Winds Casino Resort and Lincoln City Les Schwab. Registration and check-in for cars begins at 8 am. Registration forms are available atwww.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org or by calling 541-994-9994.
