Q: How is this car show different from the past?
A: It has been a local tradition for 25 years for car enthusiasts and attendees to come to Green Hill Park for the annual 4th of July Car Show. We will be continuing the tradition of the antique car show with some limitations on types of vehicles allowed inside the show. The show will include more car focused entertainment and family friendly events. In addition we will continue to have DJ's, Live music, entertainment, vendors, and more. The most significant changes you will find with this show is that there will be no burnouts, helicopter rides, or swim suit competitions. This will be replaced by more suitable entertainment all in one location.

A: No. Regular cars will be asked to park in designated general parking areas.

Q: Who is putting on this show?

The CARS OF SUMMER CAR SHOW is a completely new show but is held in the same great location at Green Hill Park, Worcester MA. We felt the tradition should focus more on quality antique cars and not the quantity of cars allowed into the park. We have replaced the burn outs, with a live antique auto auction. For those of you that have asked to keep the car show at Green Hill Park, this is your show! We have no intention of disrespecting the Summer Nationals Production or its followers. CARS OF SUMMER is just a different kind of show. We encourage you to bring your classic cars, friends, families, and enjoy the holiday weekend in the park.  IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CARS!


Q: Will I be able to bring my trailer?
A: Yes, limited space is available. You must preregister for a Three Day Pass and request a trailer permit.
