Stan Hywet

IMG_3111The annual Stan Hywet Father’s Day car show has been a northeast Ohio tradition going back 60 years. Featuring the area’s finest antique and classic cars, trucks, and special-interest autos, it has always been regarded as one of the best car events of the year. With classes ranging from early brass automobiles to late-model sports cars to CCCA Full Classics, there is something here for everyone. The show focuses on quality and typically attracts over 400 of Ohio’s very best automobiles as well as over 7,000 spectators. It is presented on the lawns of elegant Stan Hywet Hall in Akron, providing the perfect backdrop for the “Inner Circle” which highlights different makes and models each year. This is an event that isn’t to be missed by anyone with a love for great automobiles
