South Jersey’s most beloved car show is back with new features and those traditions you have come to enjoy!

The Classic Car Show in downtown Merchantville, New Jersey is open to all cars built before 1980.  The car show brings recognition to the Borough of Merchantville and funds local non-profit organizations.

The Merchantville Classic Car Show began in the late 1990’s, first known as The Merchantville Car Show & Sock Hop and later as the Merchantville Car & Bike Show.  Under the direction of Kevin Greening and Mike & Tom Rhea, the show thrived and grew annually becoming one of the largest car shows in the area as well as one of the most beloved.

After a near five year hiatus, the show is being revived and powered by The Merchantville Task Force and a group of local, experienced car enthusiasts.  The group is inspired by the roots established by the show’s founders as well as the hope of equalling the show’s past successes.  Look for this new group to continue the tradition of honoring our Veterans and helping local non-profit organizations.


  1. Hoo Rah, the Merchantville Classic Car Show is back.
    Best show I’ve ever been too.

    Where is the Registration page?

    1. Hi Bob, thanks for your input. True, our vendor fee might be a bit high compared to other shows but we are hoping for a huge turnout with something for everyone. As you know from being on our website, 4 Bands, 2 DJ’s, Kids Zone, Beer Garden, and a quality trophy for our winning show vehicles should bring a good crowd. The car show will run from 11-4 however the full event runs till 9PM and vendors wishing to stay may do so.
      Thank you again for taking the time to post – if you have any further questions or looking to participate in the show please contact us at

  2. I’m sure it will be a fine event but $25 DOS to exhibit our cars is to high. With the extensive cost to own and maintain our cars and than be charged to be the main attraction is confusing at best. There would be no show without the cars so save the money spent for T shirts and trophies and charge the spectators a small fee. My car club has decided to pass on the car shows charging higher and higher registration fees, $25 is way out of line. If we brought 20 cars at $25 thats $500 for a trophy (maybe) and that doesn’t include travel expenses.

    1. Bill,
      Thanks for taking the time to post. We appreciate your input and hope you change your mind next year. Quick question, did you call our club coordinator Lou Benucci? We could have pre-registered your club at the $20 rate saving you $100 if you brought 20 cars. Sorry we could not connect, hope you come out to walk the show.
