Edmonds Classic Car and Motorcycle Show Sept. 11: What you need to know

Here are the details on the 2022 Edmonds Classic Car Motorcycle Show, set for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11 in downtown Edmonds. Remember, it’s free to the public, and classic car and motorcycle registrations are accepted the morning of the show.

The show is presented by Doug’s Mazda and Hyundai and produced by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce. Join the thousands of spectators in admiring the 300-plus classic vehicles that fill up downtown Edmonds. In addition to grabbing a meal at any one of Edmonds’ restaurants, snag a treat from vendors within the event: Midnight Cookie Co., Pop-N-Tyme Kettle Corn and Zuri’s Gourmet Donutz. Don’t miss Robbie Dee’s Tribute to Elvis at noon and 2:30 p.m. at the fountain, followed by the awards ceremony at 3:30 p.m..

The car show wraps up at 4 p.m. but new this year is an official after-party at Engel’s Pub from 4-9 p.m. featuring live music and drink specials.

There are still spaces for show cars to register at the event – but come early as the weather looks like it’s going to perfect and that brings out all vintage vehicles, the chamber advises.

  1. I really enjoyed being woken up before dawn on a Sunday by a constant stream of loud cars and motorcycles coming down 5th Ave. Thanks a lot Edmonds. If this event happens again next year, someone remind me to get out of town for the weekend.

    1. Kevin, this event has been happening in Edmonds for many years (except maybe 2020?). So, barring another pandemic, it will happen next year; consider this your reminder.

      1. Curious that Kevin got both of his nasty comments published even before the Annual Car Show opened to the public. Many of these Car Clubs and individuals are very civic minded citizens who partake in these Shows, Parades, and Rallies, sometimes raising money for charities especially childrens non-profits. They bring nostalgic good times to their events making many smile and enjoy the camaraderie that these events provide. The participants pay an entry fee usually to show off their pride and joy. It seems that Kevins negative comments could have waited to be published after the event at the very least. I want to offer my sincere thanks to these car enthusiast for letting us relive some good times with some good memories.

  2. Linda Mae, excellent point, literally thousands of us look forward to Edmonds Annual Car Show. Thank you to those that make this huge effort to share their love of Classic Automobiles and bring this great show to our community.
