We want you to have a great experience at the Classic Auto Show and Cruise In. Get to know our judging plan and practices to give yourself the best shot at one of the nearly 300 trophies presented over two days.
Please note we made some important changes in 2021 that affect the judging process. While we had a few hiccups, we have learned and made further changes to improve the overall process. As a reminder, judges will scan your registration card and enter their scores electronically. So, please make sure your registration card is easily accessible by the judging staff. This will require the registration card being available outside of the vehicle (e.g., not inside of the vehicle on the dash), typically between the windshield and a wiper. Cars that are not registered will not be eligible for awards.

Saturday, August 20, 2022 – Hagerty Youth Judged Show
Driving the Passion for Classics and providing young people unique access to classic car-related experiences through various youth services with our Youth Advocacy Program.
Since 2007, nearly 10,000 people aged 25 and under have participated in the Hagerty Youth Advocacy Program to gain insider access to the classic car and boat hobby. Hagerty provides these youth services as a way of ‘giving back' to the classic car industry to support and encourage the next generation of car enthusiasts and collectors.
Introduced as our first official youth service in 2007, the Youth Judging Program is hosted at more than 100 classic car and boat events throughout the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Designed primarily for youth ages 8 to 14, the Youth Judging Program brings the world of classics to a kid friendly level. The Young Judges are guided through the show field as a group to pre-selected show cars and interact with owners, allowing the judges to learn details, history and fun facts about each. A simplified score card that highlights five basic categories and is rated on a scale of 1-to-5 is used.
The winners have been announced! Thanks to everyone who participated. Check the list to see if your favorites earned the top awards.See The Winners
We have over 100 shifts open that need some helping hands. Shifts are 3-4 hours long and a fun way to give back to the community while getting to see some really great classic cars!Volunteer
