8th Annual Autolawn Euro Classic Car Show


HMA will continue to monitor and follow all guidance from NC Governor Roy Cooper and the CDC. Early registration for the September 11th Autolawn event will kick off on Tuesday, June 1, 2021 and run through Thursday, August 19th. Standard registration will run from Friday, August 20th through Saturday, September 11th.
This year’s theme features the roadster. A roadster (also known as spider, spyder) is defined as an open two-seat car with emphasis on sporting appearance or character. Traditionally, Autolawn has limited vehicle participation exclusively to European models. However, in recognition of the spirit of the roadster, some American roadster models will be featured in this year’s car show.
Autolawn offers a wide-range of high quality, original European vehicles in an intimate, yet informal setting, without the pressure of a traditional Concours event. The fundraising event to benefit HMA educational programming features a Euro Classic Car Show, youth judging program, art exhibits, live music, food court, beer garden, and more.
