RUGBY, Tenn. – Classic vehicles from around the region will be on display for the annual Benefit Antique Car Show 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET June 10; and a Street Fair, filled with craft, antique and gift vendors, takes place 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET June 10-11 in Historic Rugby.
Car owners can pre-register their vehicles by calling 423-628-2441 or visiting www.historicrugby.org. Owners not already registered can do so for a $10 fee the morning of the show, space permitting.
Cars both domestic and foreign, ranging from Ford Models A and T to Chevy Corvettes and even street hotrods are expected.
The event is a favorite with spectators, who mingle with the vehicles while enjoying the atmosphere of the village. Showgoers will find food and drinks at Rugby’s newly-remodeled Harrow Road Café, various vendors, and can participate in a 50/50 drawing to benefit non-profit Historic Rugby. Door prizes will be awarded to lucky car entrants in a 2:30 p.m. ET drawing.
The Street Fair will focus on handmade crafts and other items that are native to Appalachia or the British Isles. Vendor reviews mean that items are of high quality and will be memorable gifts and keepsakes. For vendors who would like to participate, contact Jennie Chevalier at 423-628-5166 (Thursday – Sunday) or David Mayfield at 423-628-2441 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
