The 5th Annual Father’s Day Darien Collectors Car Show - This Sunday, June 20th

Darien, CT -- The 5th Annual Father’s Day Darien Collectors Car Show is set for Sunday, June 20th in Tilley Pond Park beginning at 10am and ending at 2pm.   More than 135 interesting sports, muscle, vintage and modern high performance cars will be displayed on the park’s beautiful lawns beneath its mature shade trees. 

For the first time, we will combine our show with the Porsche Club/Connecticut Valley Region.  In years past, we have competed with their Norwalk event on Father’s Day.  This year, Darien will be the only car show in Lower Fairfield County.  In addition to the People’s Choice award, we will offer judging in (8) categories including a DHS trophy based on the selection of a number of DHS student volunteers.  We will also have a “Best in Show” award.

 We are delighted to have BMW/Darien back as our lead sponsor.  In addition, the Collectors Car Garage of Bedford Hills, NY a special place for special cars, Grand Prix New York, a state of the art indoor go kart facility in Mt. Kisco, NY and Automotive Restorations Inc of Stratford, CT, a well known and highly regarded vintage car restoration and racing facility will help make the show possible.

Free spectator parking is available directly across from the main entrance on West Ave in the Darien train station lot and the Koon’s lot next door.  The Darien Lions Club will serve up delicious burgers, dogs, chips and drinks.  For our younger spectators, we will have balloons, a caricaturist to sketch their wonderful faces, go karts to try on and (2) ice cream trucks.

Our beneficiary again this year will be “Aging in Place in Darien”, an initiative aimed at helping our Darien seniors stay in their homes with grace and dignity as long as possible.   To help Aging in Place become financially self sufficient, a modest admission ($5 per person/$10 per family) will be charged for the first time.
