The Wrightwood Mountain Classic Car Show attracts car enthusiasts from miles away. Many come into town just for the car show and get away from the usual August heat in Southern California.

The mountain town of Wrightwood, California, plays host to the 26th annual Wrightwood Mountain Classic Car Show Saturday, August 21, from 10 am to 4 pm. The show features over 250 vehicles dating from the 1920s to 1975, including American-made rods, customs, classics, coupes, muscle cars, trucks, and special interest cars vying for trophies in 24 categories.

A welcome reception for the participants will be held Friday, August 16, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Wrightwood Inn, 1350 Highway 2.  A classic vehicle cruise through the Village will immediately follow. After the cruise, head back to the Inn, and enjoy KJ music and dancing from 8:30 pm – 1:00 am. 

Car show day activities begin with a pancake breakfast at the Community Building from 7:00 am to 11:00 am hosted by Boy Scouts Troop #351 and Cub Pack #351 of Wrightwood (price TBD).  The Community Building is the hub for the Vendor Village with food and various booths, Sound Express DJ Entertainment, the Chamber’s beer booth fundraiser, and the five-card poker walk for $100 cash for ages 18 and older.  There are limited entries, first-come-first-served.

Vehicles will be set up in and around downtown Wrightwood. Trike races for kids and adults will begin at 11:00 am at the town center.  The Chamber will hold hourly drawings for gift cards and car-related products and a 50/50 cash drawing at the end of the day.  Bodie Classic Rock will perform throughout the day. Trophy presentations begin at 3 pm.

The Wrightwood Chamber of Commerce hosts the Wrightwood Mountain Classic Car Show. Pre-registration is $30 through August 10, 2021, and $35 on show day. The on-site day of registration runs from 7:00 am to 10:00 am at the intersection of Apple and Pine streets near the Wrightwood Library.  Entries after 10:00 am will not be judged.

Event visitors are encouraged to support Wrightwood’s local “mom and pop” shops, restaurants, and businesses for genuine small-town hospitality. For those interested in overnight lodging, visit Event organizers encourage people to leave their pets at home as it will most likely be a warm sunny day, and the asphalt can get very hot for pets to walk on.
