Car Shows in Whatcom County, Washington

Artistic curves, kaleidoscopic colors, and the shine – oh the shine. This is the view of a car show on a beautiful, cloudless summer day in Whatcom County.

It’s the history that draws me in. I imagine a local family out for a slow Sunday drive as I admire a 1911 Model T. Or I see my parents as teenagers at a drive-in – Mom looking so cute in her poodle skirt and Dad in his cuffed jeans – standing next to a 1957 Chevy. How about those fins? My husband and daughter love the sleek lines of the 1950s and 60s Corvettes. It’s easy to have an emotional connection to these vintage vehicles. They are the industrial artwork of our collective Americana. Each shares a little piece of twentieth-century history and pop culture through the evolution of its design. And each represents the hundreds of hours of meticulous care put into restoring and preserving them.

Luckily, car clubs are prolific in Whatcom County. A car show takes place nearly every summer weekend. One just needs to know which day to look in which direction to find them.  The following schedule will help you map a route to cruise back in time.
