Del Mar Nationals Car Show Weekend | April 1-3, ’22 | Del Mar, California

April 1 @ 8:00 am - April 3 @ 3:00 pm

The Annual Del Mar Nationals Car Show starts-up for a weekend of fuel, fun, and sun on Friday, April 1st, 2022.

And yes, the show just went off last October – but schedules have been all messed up due to COVID complications.  We believe the return to April will bring annual normalcy back to the event.

With three full-days, this car show is a must-attend event for any automotive enthusiast who hungers for hot rods.  Because the show is only open to 1987 vehicles and older.  Except for Sunday when all years are welcome – as long as it’s made it the USA!

And they definitely check all the boxes when it comes to measuring motor-muscle.  Check out the list of features:

  • More than 2,500 vehicles – hot rods, customs, and muscle cars and trucks
  • Street Rod d’Elegance competition
  • Autocross competition
  • Burn out competition
  • Dragster competition

Plus they’ll have lots of engaging and entertaining activities for the kiddos.  And, of course, a swapmeet and ‘cars for sale corral.’

Dates: Friday thru Sunday – April 1st thru 3rd, 2022
Location: Del Mar Fairgrounds, Del Mar, California
Spectator Admission: Varies
Vehicle Registration: Varies

So, pretty much nothing is free at the Del Mar Nationals Car Show.  That’s except for the smell of burning rubber and the glare of highly polished hot rods.  But, the Goodguys put on a great show so it’s totally worth it.
