Fall Harvest Market

Sunday, October 3, 2021 (Rain Date October 10)

We will hold our 35th annual classical car show at Palmer Field, Route 66, Washington Street in Middletown, CT.

In addition to the ever popular classic cars on display, the show will feature an expanded Fall Harvest Market. Opportunities are available for vendors such as antique dealers, vintage purveyors, crafts people, folks downsizing, and food trucks.

The Market will be from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with set up beginning at 7:30 a.m.

The Fall Harvest Market is being held at a prime location with thousands of cars passing by each day. The classic car show, a perennially popular event, draws a large crowd and vendors are sure to do a brisk business.

Booths are 10' by 10' ($40) or 20' by 20' ($50). Customized size and pricing available upon request. Pre-registration is required.
