Welcome to the Brookings Car Festival

Greetings Brookings Area Car Enthusiasts…… 


The Brookings Car Show is an annual event put on by the Brookings Car Council.  The second weekend in June has seen Brookings, SD, filled with hot rods and muscle cars since 1993.

Having to cancel the 2020 show due to the Coronavirus situation and planning for the 2021 car show brought about some changes, and we set the car show up last year around the same methods we used for the 2021 car show.  The major change to the car show was that we went away from the judged car show to more of a Show-N-Shine style format.  This allows us to to be able to hold the show at a low cost input by us, which is past on to you as well.  Deciding on having a large “Show-N-Shine” event again for the car show versus having a judged show, seemed to have gone well, so that is our plan for this year as well.

We started meeting in January and have planned the events for this year’s 2023 Brookings Car Show weekend, which will be June 10th and 11th.   We are having some garage tours on Saturday morning, a Show-N-Shine downtown on Saturday afternoon.  Then on Sunday we are having the car show in Pioneer Park, where it will be in the central part of the park by the band shell instead of having it in the open grass area on the west side of the park.  The format of the show will be the same as how it was last year, with it not being judged and it being a Show-N-Shine event.  We won’t be giving out awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place like we have done in the past, and there will be no cost to enter the show.

For further details on times for the events on Saturday and Sunday, please see the Schedule link for a listing of the times and more information.

We are hoping to have some food vendors to choose from, and with the great collection of vehicles to view at the show, it will be an afternoon of fun for all in attendance to walk around and enjoy the cars and trucks on display.  So, as you have been doing for the past years, get your classics out of the garage, clean them up if need be, and get them entered in the Show-N-Shine car show on Sunday.

Thank you for the years of your support in attending the Brookings Car Show.  We are hoping all the surrounding area car enthusiasts will be looking forward to getting your cars, trucks, and motorcycles out and attending a car show to visit with friends and all the other people you meet while at a car show.  Hope to see you at the Brookings Car Festival events on Saturday, June 10th and Sunday, June 11th!
