This weekend, automobile enthusiasts are expected to flock to the 67th edition of The New Hope Automobile Show.

Spanning two days, the event at New Hope-Solebury High School on West Bridge Street celebrates the evolution of both domestic and foreign cars while commemorating four milestone auto anniversaries.

On Saturday, August 12, the Corvette’s 70th anniversary will take center stage. The following day, Sunday, August 13, will spotlight the 100th anniversary of the MG and the 75th anniversaries of both Porsche and Lotus.

One of the show’s highlights includes the 2023 poster car, a pristine 1971 Lotus Type 69 Formula 2 race car, which will be available for viewing both days.

The event promises a unique experience each day:

  • Saturday is dedicated to domestic fehicles featuring vintage and classic domestic cars, fire apparatus, a variety of rods – from hot to custom – and replicars.
  • Sunday pivots to foreign vehicles, showcasing vintage and classic foreign cars from renowned manufacturers such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, and McLaren, along with a Tuner class.

Those who attend won’t just be indulging their passion for cars; they will be supporting a good cause, according to organizers.

Proceeds from the nationally-known event are channeled through New Hope Helping, a local organization formed in 1949, that has, donated over $1.6 million to community organizations and charities.

Notable contributions include providing New Hope-Solebury High School with a gymnasium, a 17-acre recreation field, Community Center, track, and annual scholarships for its seniors.

The organization also supports regional non-profits, many of whom volunteer at The New Hope Automobile Show, New Hope Helping’s premier fundraising event.

General admission tickets for the show are $10 per person, children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult. Active military and their families are free with ID. On-site parking is $5.
