Today is the Heritage Annual Auto Show! This family-friendly event highlights antique and classic automobiles, hot rods, and custom cars in excellent original or restored condition. All body styles are invited and displayed on the lawns and fields at Heritage, where registered vehicles can compete for awards. Enjoy lunch from the Magnolia Café, vote for your favorite car, participate in a family auto show challenge, and watch the exit parade of show cars at 2 pm.


This year’s show will highlight the Cape Cod Chapter of the Early Ford V8 Club. It was the power, reliability, and affordability of the Ford V8 that helped change the face of American automobile travel, and we’re pleased to have the Early Ford V8 automobiles and their owners as our special guests. This event is generously sponsored by the Arbella Insurance Foundation.
