2019 Maine Car Show Calendar

A drone’s-eye-view of the Toys for Tots “All Club” Car Show at Portland Motor Club

Hope you’re enjoying our 2019 car show season. If it still says 2018 it’s because I haven’t heard back from show organizers or they still don’t know! Sad to see some shows shut down but hard to find volunteers to do all the work. But, that said, there are also some new shows cropping up here and there so that’s pretty great!

Please send all updates, corrections, additions, deletions and suggestions to info@portlandmotorclub.com. We are trying to have a very comprehensive list with accurate times, dates, details and contact information. Please help us to keep making this better — a clean list is a happy list!

Hey — we’d love a photo from your car show and we can put something in near your listing. Send it to info@portlandmotorclub.com please.
