Lake Bluff History Museum AUTO SHOW 2024

The always popular Lake Bluff History Museum Auto Show is on Saturday, June 22, 2024, from 2 to 5 pm in historic downtown Lake Bluff.

The Auto Show transforms the village’s downtown area into a showcase for scores of unique and beautifully maintained cars from the early 1900s to 1980. Car brands include everything from Studebaker, Porsche, Jaguar and Rolls Royce to Chevy, Dodge and Ford.

There is no charge to enter the Auto Show, and the event is family friendly. Parking is available at the Lake Bluff Train Station.

NOTE TO EXHIBITORS: Collectors of cars dating up to 1980 are invited to register their vehicle at this link. Due to overwhelming demand for the Auto Show, we have to set a limit on auto attendance. We have a limited number of parking spaces.

  • If you HAVE ALREADY PRE-REGISTERED, you don’t need to do anything. Pre-registered cars may enter at noon on Saturday, June 22.
  • If you have NOT PRE-REGISTERED, a limited number of spaces remain. We will close pre-registrations at 6:00 pm Tuesday, June 18, or when we reach capacity. We will notify you in the event capacity has been exceeded.
