Upcoming Car Shows and Cruise-Ins in the Charlotte Area

Several vintage cars at a car show

Car enthusiasts, there are plenty of opportunities in the Charlotte area for you to show off your car, and to admire other cars.

Car shows and cruise-ins are both events that bring together people who love cars. Some car shows are focused on a certain type of car (classic, vintage, or modern) and some are even limited to a particular make of car.

Some of these events have a competitive aspect, with judges awarding prizes for the best cars in various categories. Sometimes (but not always) you’ll find vendors selling car-related merchandise, food vendors, and maybe even live music or entertainment.

On the other hand, a cruise-in is a more casual gathering of car enthusiasts. These events typically take place in a parking lot or other open space, where car owners can park their vehicles and show them off to other enthusiasts. There is generally no competitive aspect to a cruise-in. Some cruise-ins are components of larger events.

Read on for a list of car shows and cruise-ins in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. We also include other types of vehicle shows, like truck shows.

Also, we can’t list all the local car shows, so if you want to see even more, follow Charlotte Car Shows on Facebook! They are on it!
