Participation Policy:
Please keep cars and music turned off when parked. Loud music, burnouts, donuts, and excessive engine revving are strictly prohibited. Offenders will be asked to leave the property. Dangerous / risky driving while arriving or leaving the premises will likewise not be tolerated. East Hartford Police as well as State Police detail officers will be on-site for the duration of the event and will be ticketing.
Also, per request of local police and facility management, we must ask that all attending the event stay away from the chain-link fences between the event’s entrance/exit and spectator lot next to Silver Lane. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Participate at your own risk.

Like previous years, the size of Rentschler Field allows us to accommodate virtually any number of cars for showing. Nobody will be turned away before 2:00pm.

There will be no pre-registration. Due to the nature of Rentscher Field’s parking lots and the sheer volume of cars attending, we cannot guarantee parking with friends, clubs, groups, etc. If you want the best chance at parking together, make sure to arrive together. Please note that even this does NOT guarantee that we will be able to grant all parking requests due to the extreme volume of traffic anticipated.

Important: Spectator parking will be in a separate lot outside of the lots for registered show cars. If you do not plan to register your car for showing, you will be asked to park in the spectator area. Police officers and club members will be available to direct you.

All Cars Welcome!
For those who have yet to see one of our shows, we tend to amass some of the greatest diversity of cars in one place. Anyone who has been to a previous show can attest that there’s something for everyone, including Classics, Domestics, Imports, Euros and even Supercars.
