Auburn Heights Invitational: Classic Car Show & Garden Party

Roll out the red carpet for this year's theme of "screen stars"

Hollywood comes to Auburn Heights! This year’s 10th annual Auburn Heights Invitational spotlights Screen Stars, local cars matching those on the big and small screen. Some of the memorable automobiles that guests will experience include a 1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider (The Graduate), 1932 Ford Roadster Coupe (American Graffiti), 1961 Chevrolet Corvette (Animal House) and 1980 Ferrari 308 GTSi (Magnum P.I.).


Also featured are some of the finest early automobiles of the last century, including a 1910 Mercer Model 30 Speedster, 1913 Locomobile Model R, 1931 Ahrens Fox Fire Engine, and 1962 Cadillac Limousine. Visitors can explore the recently renovated Marshall Steam Museum, which includes a new attraction: an exhibit of 80 extraordinary pedal cars! The display is only on view for a limited time and a perfect addition to the evening. 


Be sure to come hungry (and thirsty), plus bring your bidding face to compete for one-of-a-kind experiences, such as a ride in a PT-17 open cockpit biplane (with all proceeds from the silent auction and raffle benefitting the Joseph Boxler Education Fund, which supports educational programs at the Marshall Steam Museum). Food will be available from Mama Mia Continental Fusion food truck, as well as ice cream from Woodside Farm Creamery. Beer from Dew Point Brewing of Yorklyn, DE, will be available for purchase along with wine selections from Total Wine. All proceeds from the event support the Marshall Steam Museum and Friends of Auburn Heights (FAH), a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and operating the extraordinary collections entrusted to its care.


EVENT DETAILS:  Admission includes entry to the Marshall Steam Museum, which houses the world’s largest operating collection of Stanley steam cars, plus free steam-popped popcorn from the museum’s restored 1930s Cretors popper, and rides on the Auburn Valley Railroad. A silent auction & raffle featuring unique and extraordinary local items round out the day’s activities.


ADMISSION: Advance tickets are $20 ages 15 & up; $14 age 14 and under (infants free); $25 at the gate. Advance tickets may be purchased online at AuburnHeights.org or by phone at 302-239-2385 (weekdays 9 to 5). All major credit cards are accepted.
