If Classic Car Shows Are YOUR Thing, Crawford County Has a Fall Schedule to Delight Car Lovers

There is still nothing like an old-fashioned car show in the summer and fall. For those who enjoy and own classic cars, it’s a great time to shine them up and show them off, hang out with new and old friends, and enjoy a Saturday of entertainment. For those without cars, it’s a great time revel in a love of old cars and stroll around for food and fun.

In Crawford County, let alone in Mid Ohio, there are more than a few coming up just in September! Check out these local Bucyrus and Galion car shows. Most are raising money for a good cause like charity or historical non-profits.
