Wed Oct 8
The Eastern Division AACA National Fall Meet takes place each year during the 1st full week in October. The Hershey Region began hosting the show in 1955 and has done so each year since then. The meet is located in beautiful Hershey, PA on the grounds and parking lots surrounding HersheyPark and The Giant Center, and is considered one of the largest antique automobile shows and flea markets in the United States.
It consists of over 9,000 flea market spaces, over 1,000 car corral spaces, and approximately 1,500 show cars. Each year the show attracts visitors from all over the United States and many countries throughout the world. Some of the most unusual cars and parts can be found at Hershey. If you love antique cars, Hershey is the place to be.
You’ll also want to visit the AACA Museum, where they always have great exhibits. Special features include the Grand Opening of their new Cammack Tucker Gallery, 100 Years of Dodge, and a special display of Indian motorcycles.
Wednesday through Saturday, the Car Corral and the Flea Market open at 7:00 AM, and there are free events such as Old Time Movies, Vintage Racing, and Junior AACA Activities happening all week. The Judges school takes place on Friday at 2:00 PM, and the next day, they jump into action judging AACA Member’s cars in the Giant Center parking lot. Plan on getting up early on Saturday, as the show cars parading into the facility are a site not to miss. RM’s popular Hershey Auction is nearby at The Hershey Lodge on Thursday and Friday evenings, with the annual AACA Awards banquet taking over on Saturday evening at 7:00 PM.
