The annual Greenwood Car Show brings thousands of people to the neighborhood to gawk at hundreds of sweet rides lining Greenwood Avenue. But this year’s 17th annual car show on Saturday, June 27, is a bit different. It is now being managed by a non-profit car club, the Greenwood Knights. It’s a group of local business owners who are mechanics, car collectors, and automotive enthusiasts. Two of the six original founders of the car show are Knights, so there’s plenty of experience there.
As always, they need lots of volunteers for all kinds of positions (selling T-shirts, security, information booths, etc.) For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, please email them.
The Knights are looking to reconnect the car show with the local neighborhood in order to help foster a greater sense of community interaction and help increase awareness of the local businesses here in Greenwood. This year, the Greenwood Knights will be making a financial contribution to the Greenwood Food Bank (Volunteers of America) and we will be doing a can-food drive on the day of the show. Please bring any non-perishable items for those who are in need on the day of the event.
This year we will have out a vintage Hydroplane, five live bands, a DJ playing oldies, many food and retail vendors, and the well known Kids Zone. We will also have Lance Lambert from the Vintage Vehicle Show out to film the event and conduct the Awards Ceremony. The Greenwood Car Show will be shown on Lance’s television program on over 70 US networks and in nearly 30 other countries around the world.
Spectators and car owners will be able to purchase T-Shirts, DVDs of The Vintage Vehicle Show DVD featuring the 2009 Greenwood Car Show, and our 12″x18″ 2009 Car Show Poster.
The Car Show runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with live music from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and awards at 3 p.m.
