50TH ANNUAL CARNATION FESTIVAL | WHEAT RIDGE, COLORADO | Family Fun SINCE 1969

Car Show Comes Roaring Back, August 11, 9am-3pm

Classic car owners and enthusiasts are really tuning up for the 2019 Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival because this year the Wheat Ridge High School Farmers Football and the WR Quarterback Club are partnering with the Carnation Festival for the second annual “Big Wheels on the Farm” car show fundraiser.  The beautiful vehicles will roll in (loudly) on Sunday, August 11th, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Anderson Park (44th and Field St.)  

The display will showcase decades worth of American muscle, hotrods, exotics, classics and vintage vehicles--all parked in the heart of The 2019 Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival festivities, surrounded by food trucks, vendors, the main stage and more.

It’s a perfect combination…. a day of family fun and helping raise money for the Wheat Ridge High School football team. (Registration fees support the program)

There will be plenty to gawk over during contests among the different car classifications. To maintain the festival’s community spirit, the judging will be done by Wheat Ridge Community Service Members. Custom-made trophies will be awarded in multiple categories.

Whatever the classic/vintage car type, this show is sure to have a category for it. This year’s categories* are:

  1. Best of show
  2. Pre-war (1940 and older) production
  3. Post-war (1941- 1972) production
  4. Contemporary (72 and newer) production
  5. Stock original (all years)
  6. Motorcycle
