2015 marks the 62th Anniversary of the Vermont Automobile Enthusiasts. As part of observing this milestone we are renewing our association with the Shelburne Museum by announcing the 12th Shelburne Museum Classic Auto Festival.

The Reunion will take place June 5, 6, 7, 2015 at beautiful Shelburne Museum overlooking Lake Champlain in Shelburne, Vermont.
We are welcoming all vehicles 1990 and earlier to participate in this celebration!

However, Cadillac Owners are invited to bring their cars, regardless of age or condition, for a tribute display honoring Vermont’s Native Son, Henry Leland, founder of the Cadillac Automobile Company in 1902. An award will be given for the oldest Cadillac at the show. Contact Jim Sears

Don’t miss the 1910 Sears Roebuck automobile which will “arrive” at the Shelburne Museum train station in a crete, be assembled on site, started up and driven around, just as it would have happened originally.

All entrants will receive a Dash Plaque and 4 passes to the Festival and the Museum for the 3 days.

All entrants’ cars will be positioned on the Museum grounds according to decade of manufacture, as there will be no vehicle classes or judging.

Awards in several categories will be presented on Sunday.

The venue of the Museum makes this more than just a car show; it is an event for your whole family featuring many hands-on displays throughout the Museum grounds, with its expansive collection of Vermont historical exhibits, buildings and artifacts.

For more information about the Car Corral Contact Ernie or Bill or call (802) 372-6521
