Hartford Classic Car Show« Back to Events
The 11th annual Hartford Classic Car Show is back for 2021 and it runs Saturday, May 15th this year! Check out some amazing classic cars on display on Main Street (Highway 83) from 10am – 4pm, with an awards ceremony at 3:30. Cars and trucks are categorized by era:
Trucks will be categorized as pre-1960 and post-1960.
Those wanting to display their cars and trucks can enter for $15 on Saturday the 15th.
If you’re visiting the Hartford Classic Car Show, you can enjoy the beautiful vehicles and explore many more at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum a block away. The Museum features some true classics, including Wisconsin-made brands like Nash, American Motors, and the Hartford-made Kissel models. The Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame is also there, plus other race cars, real trains, and a huge Lionel layout that will “wow” any car or train buff.
Of course, you can also visit The Mineshaft, the famous Wisconsin restaurant that serves as one of the state’s largest, with a huge game room on the second floor. Other great shops can be found up and down Main Street (Highway 83) and some of the nearby blocks as well. Scoop de Ville, for example, is a great old-fashioned sweet treat shop that supports the car show and you’ll find them right on Main Street.
Other sights in Hartford include the beautiful Willowbrook Park, which has classic stone buildings and bridges right along Highway 60/Sumner Street. The Schwartz Ballroom on the city’s south side is a classic dance hall, built in 1928 with a rich history of hosting events, musicians, and more. And of course, Pike Lake State Park is on Hartford’s eastern edge as part of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Weather should be great for all kinds of fun!
Of course, Highways 60 and 83 meet in downtown Hartford and they’re the best ways to get there. Hartford is less than 10 minutes west of I-41, Highway 164, and Highway 175.
