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.

We were disappointed that we had to cancel the 2020 show due to the Coronavirus situation and for planning last year’s 2021 car show, we set the show up so that we would be able to hold the show at a low-cost input by us, so that if we would have to cancel it, we would not be out a lot of money after purchasing awards and T-shirts, etc. that would be dated and not usable the next year.  We decided on having a large “Show-N-Shine” event for the car show versus having a judged show, so we would not have to incur the costs of all the awards in case we would have to cancel the show again.  The Coronavirus situation improved, so we were able to have the car show last year in June.

We started meeting in January and have planned a few more events for this year’s 2022 Brookings Car Show weekend, which will be June 11th and 12th.   We are having some garage tours on Saturday morning, a Show-N-Shine downtown on Saturday afternoon, and we are also planning to once again have the cruise we have done in the past on Saturday afternoon.  Then on Sunday we are having the car show in Pioneer Park but will be having it on the east side of the park by the bandshell instead of having it in the open grass area on the west side of the park.  The format of the show will be similar to 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, but there will be no cost to enter the show this year.

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 11th and Sunday, June 12th!
