Car Shows

There are actually two great car shows at Rhinebeck 2017. As usual the car show will feature Saturday’s Rod and Custom Dust Off devoted to hot rods, street rods, customs, race cars, and compact customs/pickups. A great number of vehicles are expected to be on the show field Saturday. An Awards committee selects award winners in over 30 categories.

Sunday’s show is for unmodified antique and classic vehicles manufactured up to 1992. On Sunday many great antique and classic cars are parked in 60 classes. First, second and third place awards are presented in these classes. Rhinebeck’s 200 volunteer judges employ “Dust Off” judging. This is not a concours event. Last years first place winners award winners are displayed in our Winners Circle. Pre-registration $15 is strongly recommended but you can register the day of the show for $20.

Swap Meet :

The Swap Meet at Rhinebeck has been a favorite among car collectors from all over the Northeast for years. Our objective is to make this the most vendor friendly Swap Meet around. There are a large amount of Swap Spaces at Rhinebeck both Outside and Inside that consist of four large well lighted buildings. New vendors are welcome but get your registration in early. All vendors MUST have a New York State Tax Number to participate in any NY swap meet and Rhinebeck is no exception. Our long time vendors tell us that Rhinebeck is one of their favorite shows. Each year thousands of spectators come to Rhinebeck so if you have auto related items or services to sell, complete and return the form by April 15th. If you want to keep your current spaces we MUST receive your registration by April 1st. To keep set up smooth, all vendors are required to pre-register. 10 X 30 foot outdoor spaces cost $50 and 10 X 20 foot indoor spaces are $75. Vendor set up begins at about 11:00 AM on Friday and continues until dusk.
