CAPE MAY – Cruise into Historic Cold Spring Village for the popular Annual Classic and Antique Car Show. The event will be held Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 17-18, and cars will be on display each day from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Vintage automobiles and trucks will park among the shaded paths and historic buildings. This event is generously sponsored by Kindle Auto Plaza.
See beautifully restored and preserved vehicles, from muscle cars to light trucks, from the 1910s to the 1970s parked along the Village’s tree-lined, shell-paved lanes. On Saturday, members of the Jersey Cape Region AACA will be showing their antique vehicles, while hotrods and other classics will be presented by KB Productions and the Greater Wildwood Hotel & Motel Association on Sunday. “This is one of our longest-running, as well as one of our most popular events,” said Anne Salvatore, HCSV Executive Director. The buildings will be open during regular Village hours, from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., with interpreters in period clothing teaching guests about the crafts, trades and lifestyles of Early America.
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 26 restored historic structures on a 30-acre site. 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 Tuesday through Sunday, with special events every weekend through mid-September.
Historic Cold Spring Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and four miles south of Rio Grande (Exit 4 of the Garden State Parkway). Admission during the season is $10 for adults and $8 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. Unlimited free admission is available with Village membership. As a member of the national Blue Star Museums program, Historic Cold Spring Village is proud to offer free admission to active duty military personnel and up to 5 family members. The Village Nature Trail at Bradner’s Run is open to the public for free self-guided tours. Visit the Country Store, Needle Arts Coop, Bakery, Ice Cream Parlor and Cold Spring Grange Restaurant.
