Cruise into Historic Cold Spring Village for the Annual Classic and Antique Car Show on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14. Cars will be on display each day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. See beautifully restored and preserved vehicles, from muscle cars to light trucks, from the 1910s to the 1980s, parked along the Village’s tree-lined, shell-paved lanes. Talk with the owners and learn about the process of restoring a classic automobile as well as the fascinating stories behind their development and use. On Saturday, members of the Jersey Cape Auto Club will show their antique vehicles, while hotrods and other classics will be presented by the Greater Wildwood Hotel & Motel Association on Sunday. The Village’s historic buildings will be open during regular museum hours, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with interpreters in period clothing teaching guests about the crafts, trades and lifestyles of Early America. The Classic and Antique Car Show is generously sponsored by Kindle Auto Plaza.
Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit, open-air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American period. It features 27 restored historic structures on a 30-acre site. Tuesday through Sunday, from late June to early September, interpreters and artisans in period clothing preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” Fun and educational activities for children are featured, with special events every weekend through September.
The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern terminus of the Garden State Parkway. Admission during the season is $12 for adults and $10 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. Unlimited free admission is available with Village membership. The Village Nature Trail at Bradner’s Run is open to the public for free self-guided tours. Visit the Country Store, Bakery, Ice Cream Parlor, Brewery and Cold Spring Grange Restaurant.
