65th Annual Antique Car Show This Weekend

The 65th Annual Middle Tennessee Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America (Mid-TN AACA) Fall Meet Antique Car Show will be held Friday & Saturday, September 10 and 11, at the historic Thomas House Hotel in Red Boiling Springs - the perfect setting for a trip down memory lane with its antique treasures, timeless character and community history. 

With over 400 cars and 100 vendors participating in years passed, this antique car show is Tennessee’s oldest show and one of the largest in the state. 

The show offers 58 classes for entry, with the top three in each class awarded trophies. Special awards will also be given out for ‘Best of Show-production’, ‘Best of Show-modified,’ ‘Mayor’s Choice,’ ‘Mrs. Cole’s Choice,’ ‘Longest Distance driven,’ and ‘Ladies Choice.’ The first 200 cars entered will also receive a t-shirt and dash plaque. 

Registration will take place at The Thomas House on Friday between 10 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and from 7 a.m. until noon on Saturday. The cost to register a vehicle is $15 for the first class entry and $10 for each additional entry. Cars for sale and display can register for $15.

Judging will take place as each car arrives and an awards presentation will be held at 3 p.m.

Aside from the rows and rows of antique cars, guests will also be treated to a large on-site flea market Friday, September 10, and Saturday, September 11, full of collectibles, auto-related items, vintage items and must-have treasures. Flea market space for one day is $15 and $25 for both days.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the 65th Fall Meet Car Show,” said Thomas House owner Cherry Cole. “We really enjoy seeing all of the antique cars and the familiar faces, and hearing everyone share their stories. This event really brings everyone in the community together, and we feel very lucky to be a part of it for all these years.” 

Red Boiling Springs has been the home of the Mid-TN Region AACA Fall Meet for over 50 years.
