A Father’s Day Show Tradition

Established in 1957

Featuring the area’s finest antique and classic cars, trucks, and special-interest autos, this show has always been regarded as one of the best car events of the year.

The show focuses on quality and typically attracts more than 400 of Ohio’s very best automobiles as well as over 6,000 spectators. It is presented on the lawns of elegant Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens 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

Registration opens January 1st and closes June 1st or when spaces sell out… and they SELL OUT EACH YEAR. 
Don’t say we didn’t warn you! 

This show is unlike any other…

All show vehicles are at least 25 years old & stock.

We are proud of our annual Father’s Day show show because we present a field of vehicles that are stock and at least 25 years old. The goal is to show vehicles like they would have been in the showrooms of their day.

We go back in time to vehicles that are more than 100-years-old in our Century Cars class and we recently added a class for ‘survivors’ which have been preserved and maintained but never restored.

Every vehicle is pre-registered so we know what we have ahead of time and layout the show field accordingly. We have CCCA Full Classics. We have Model Ts and As. We have stock muscle cars. We have trucks and military vehicles.  We really do have a little bit of everything for everyone. 

Each year we aim to to present a special feature that will showcase vehicles from a specific marque, anniversary, or special feature such as Mustang’s 50th anniversary, Lincoln’s 100th anniversary, the British Invasion and more. Check back each year to see what we have planned.

Show Sponsors & Volunteers Needed!

The Father’s Day Show at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is ORCCCA’s primary fundraising activity and helps us promote history, the collector car hobby, and the preservation of a bygone era. The show is staffed entirely by volunteers. It takes a lot of work to coordinate this long-standing tradition and we wouldn’t be able to do it without the dedication and hard work of our incredible volunteers.

It’s an event that generations of local families have eagerly anticipated and enjoyed for decades, and we cordially invite you to be part of it as a sponsor and/or volunteer.

All sponsors will receive 2 tickets to the show including on-site parking. Your name will be included on the ORCCCA web site and you will also be acknowledged throughout the day’s announcements and included in the event program as well as on-site signage. Sponsors may provide a small item or business pamphlet to include the in the driver goody bags.
