Woodie Car Show to be rescheduled for October

Sep 8, 2023

The display of antique cars at the Woodie Car Show has been canceled for both September dates.

According to A.D. Makepeace’s Kim Houdlette, the show is set to be rescheduled for sometime in October, but no official date has been announced.

The show will be held at 146 Tihonet Road. 

The event is being co-hosted by the Yankee Wood Chapter of the National Woodie Club and A.D. Makepeace, and it will feature classic Woodies. 

Woodies are cars — usually station wagons, but not always — that feature real wood in the construction. Most were built from the early 1930s up until 1953, when they were phased out. Because the wood construction made maintenance and repairs difficult, the cars are rarities.

“The beauty of the antique cars matches up with the historic venue of A.D. Makepeace Company,” the company said in its newsletter.

The car show will also feature live music. Makepeace Farms will be open during the event, selling treats and New England-inspired gifts.

Admission is free.
