This Weekend! The Autos & Oysters Car Show & Sock Hop!


The 2nd Annual “Autos & Oysters” Car Show on Saturday hosted by Apalachicola Main Street will display a beautiful selection of vehicles, from vintage to late model, and everything in between.

Dozens of cars are pre-registered for the event including a fantastic array of classic American muscle cars and a strong showing of Porsches of every variety. Also look for the 1932 Auburn Boattail Speedster, 1947 MG and 1960 Austin Healey.

The show is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Water Street in downtown Apalachicola, immediately followed by the awards ceremony. Plaques will be awarded for the Top 50, Sponsor’s Choice, Greatest Club Participation, Greatest Distance Traveled and Best of Show.

The head judge will be J.C. O’Steen of Tallahassee. O’Steen has judged several major national and international events and owns an impressive collection of vintage cars and motorcycles.

If you'd like to enter your car in the show, registration opens at 9:00 a.m. and the cost is $20. The registration tent will be located on the corner of Water Street and Avenue E.

Later Saturday evening, don your favorite 50s attire or come as you are to the City Docks at Riverfront Park for a Sock Hop from 7 p.m. – until. Local refreshments will be available. Admission is free for both events.
