17th Annual Car Show in downtown Kendallville, Indiana.

Saturday, September 9, 2023, marks the 18th year that the Kendallville Car Show has been attracting classic cars to downtown Kendallville. The show runs from noon until 6:00 p.m. and typically draws hundreds of cars and trucks, along with thousands of car enthusiasts.

Judging begins at noon, with dozens of awards given at 5:00 p.m., including Mayor’s Choice, Police Chief’s Choice, Fire Chief’s Choice, Raddest Rat Rod, and Best in Show.

The first 250 cars registered will receive a goody bag sponsored by Black and Ramer Insurance, and a one-of-a- kind dash plaque.

The Hot Rod Kings band will be in Founder’s Park playing lots of great oldies. There will be a DJ, a 50/50 drawing, as well as food vendors and merchants to satisfy hungry appetites and shoppers.

Registration is just $10 per vehicle. Register online using the button below, or in person the day of the event.

Vehicle owners are asked to enter downtown from East William Street, where they will then be directed to a designated parking spot. After parking, vehicle owners are asked to visit the registration table at the corner of Main and William Streets to check in or register, and to collect their goody bag, dash plaque and door prize (first 100 attendees.)

Only registered vehicles are eligible for door prizes, awards, and dash plaques.
