From the organizers: “The wonderful display of more than 650 show vehicles surrounding the restored, 1920’s art deco-inspired Lake Mirror Promenade in Downtown Lakeland provides one of the most scenic venues in the country. This event is known for its beautiful lakefront setting and friendly atmosphere.

To emphasize, the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival attracts over 40,000 spectators and draws top car collectors from all over the southeast. Also, this show serves as a support event to the prestigious Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.


“The Concours d’Elegance is the featured event of the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival weekend. Approximately 100 premium classic automobiles are invited to be displayed along the Lake Mirror Promenade on Saturday. A team of expert judges inspect and grade the vehicles worthy to receive a coveted Lake Mirror Swan trophy. (my note; these cars are spectacular!)

The Open Car Show

The Open Car Show takes place on the streets of downtown Lakeland starting at 10:00 AM on Saturday. All vehicles must be pre-registered. The streets will be closed-off to accommodate nearly 500 special interest and collector cars of all types.
Vehicles will be displayed in groups of similar makes and models. Marque specific car clubs are encouraged to attend. Street vendors and entertainers add to the festival atmosphere as thousands of appreciative spectators enjoy the vehicles.

This group is not judged, but sponsors carefully choose their favorite vehicles to receive a coveted Lake Mirror Classic Ribbon.”

Finally, I want to add that Lake Mirror is a beautiful place to stroll around and enjoy all the cars and people. We have been to see this show and can highly recommend it if you’re a true classic car lover. To find more information, and a map with directions,  click here. The show takes place in downtown.
