Sunday, June 19, 2022, 27th Annual Main Street Father's Day Car Show
Hyannis Area Chamber of Commerce
Father’s Day Main Street Car Show
Hyannis, Massachusetts, the largest town on Cape Cod, is a popular vacation spot and the quaint shops and eateries in its downtown area are always bustling with activity. For the last 26 years on Father’s Day, Main Street Hyannis has drawn a much larger crowd than normal, thanks to its annual car show, an all-volunteer effort organized by the Hyannis Area Chamber of Commerce and co-sponsored by Horgan Insurance Agency and International Classic Auctions (ICA).
Each year, Main Street is closed to through traffic and over 350 specialty cars are displayed along the street. The 2008 show, the 14th annual event, brought vehicles from all over New England as well as New York. Thousands of spectators came out to admire the sea of colorful sheet metal. Food vendors and other activities are also featured, and the event runs from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., with the street opening up to regular traffic by 2 p.m. It is free to spectators and a great family day of fun!
After 26 years, the show has developed quite a following and often sells out to participants weeks before the show, with each participant receiving a collectible dash plaque and goodie bag. Due to parking limitations, only 350 pre-registration applications are accepted each year, and there are no vehicles newer than 25 years old.
