Catch One of These Car Shows in Dallas This Summer

Kick-off the summer by going to one of the local car and auto shows near our downtown Dallas apartments. You can see every sort of automobile, from antique pick-ups to classic hot rods. Some of our local car shows also feature live music as well as food, artisan vendors, and other fun activities. 

The Invasion Car Show

Held annually in the historic Dallas neighborhood of Deep Ellum, The Invasion Car Show “invades” the district and hosts over 300 pre-1964 registered vehicles. Enjoy checking out the vehicles, shopping at vendor booths, and attending an after-party with live music on September 24th. Additionally, the event also features a pageant, during which “Miss Invasion” will be crowned. The competition is completely open to the public, so if you’d like to take home a crown, send in your registration in August.

Bluegrass on Ballard Car Show

Located about a half-hour drive from Dallas, this car show in downtown Wylie is held every June. Enjoy an exciting event that features over 200 cars and tons of artisan vendors, food, and other activities. In addition, you can bring your lawn chairs or picnic blanket to watch the bluegrass bands in Olde City Park. Music starts at 1:00 p.m. on June 25th. 

Westlake Classic Car Show

Also located about a half-hour drive from Dallas, the Westlake Classic Car Show is worth the drive to see this October. The show is dedicated to automotive history and features 1909 to 1960 originals or restored automobiles and trucks. When you attend this event, you’ll see all the true classics of each decade. Check out the sedans, convertibles, and pickups in each class. Enjoy the music of the Roaring ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s through the show.
