Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival

Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival

October 18th-20th

Now in its 14th year, the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival is considered one of the “must do” collector car shows in the southeastern United States. The display of more than 600 show vehicles on and surrounding the restored 1920s, art deco-inspired Lake Mirror promenade in downtown Lakeland provides one of the most scenic venues in the country.

The featured event of the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival is Saturday’s Concours d’Elegance. Featuring a selection of 100 cars, the judged Concours is presented along and adjacent to the promenade of Lake Mirror Park. The elegant Lake Mirror Park setting will be enchanted by live classical music performed by members of the Imperial Symphony Orchestra.


The excitement of the auctioneers chant will be heard in Munn Park on Saturday during the Collector Car Auction where enthusiastic bidders will compete for that special car they’ve always wanted.

Fire up your Hot Rods for Friday night’s Budweiser Hot Rod Rendezvous on the shores of Lake Mirror. Rock to the music of Junior and the MDs and see the Hot Rods fire up their engines for the Hot Rod Rumble at 8:00pm.

Lakeland area auto dealers will unveil their new 2014 model cars at the Heacock Insurance New Car Unveiling on Friday night at Lake Mirror Park adjacent to the Hot Rod Rendezvous.


Saturday’s Open Car Show on the streets of downtown Lakeland will attract over 300 collector cars of all types. Local merchants and vendors will provide plenty of food offerings and souvenirs.

Period correct fashions are appropriate when showing a classic car. Participants in the Vintage Fashion Show will be presented to the judges at 1:00pm on Saturday at the Lake Mirror Amphitheater.

Pre-registered vehicles will depart from Lake Mirror Park on Sunday morning for the Hemmings Country Road Tour to an undisclosed destination where they will be treated to brunch and prizes. Guest of honor Wayne Cherry will lead the rally.
