Mirrors? Check. Keys? Check. Engines? Let’s get them running. Cars throughout the country are gearing up for the Moab Car Show, an event packed with cool cars, trophy awards, a live band and plenty of entertainment to amuse the entire family. Taking place in the scenic city of Moab on April 28 through April 30, this car show attracts thousands of spectators who come for the festivities, and of course, to check out the hundreds of old-school, modern and unique cars competing for the awards.
The show got its start in 1991 when a few Moab car enthusiasts decided to start a weekly “hang out” at a local restaurant to show off their cars. Fast forward almost 26 years later, and the festival has become one of the most popular events in the city – and this year will be no exception.
The first day kicks off with a 50-mile group drive to Green River. Following the drive, attendees will enjoy a delicious lunch at the famous Ray’s Tavern and will be able to view the cars parked in front of Ray’s. The city park will open on Saturday where food, vendors, live music, a costume contest and of course, an array of stunning cars will make up the festivities. And then to the big finale. On Sunday, a complimentary breakfast will be served right before the much-anticipated award ceremony and trophy presentation takes place.
In addition to satisfying the cravings of car enthusiasts, the car spectacle also gives back to its local community. The event’s proceeds are donated to the Moab Free Health Clinic, a nonprofit clinic that provides medical services to the uninsured and underinsured in the Moab community, and provides resources, education and programs for all the city’s residents.
