Glassboro Revs Up For Its 15th Annual Car Show & Food Truck Festival

GLASSBORO, N.J. — Thousands of car enthusiasts are expected in in Downtown Glassboro and the Town Square for the 15th Annual Glassboro Car Show and Food Truck Festival on Friday, August 30 beginning at 5:00 P.M.

On display at the free, family-friendly event, will be restored vehicles representing all decades of automotive history as well as exotics, EVs, and motorcycles. Food vendors will be on site selling food and non- alcoholic beverages. Landmark Americana will host two Beer Gardens. 

“Each year, our goal is to grow the selection vehicles that are all-new to the show and match the passions of our attendees,” Glassboro Council President George Cossabone, Sr. said in a statement. “For our younger attendees the passion for cars and motorcycles starts very early, so it was important to us to provide a wealth of fun activities for kids—the drivers of the future. These new attractions will entertain and inspire children, while also providing  them with opportunities to learn about the rich history and legendary fanfare of iconic automotive brands.”

The event will feature a judged competition with trophies awarded along with the show’s “Concours d’Elegance” — a French phrase that literally means “competition of elegance.”  The phrase refers to events where distinguished vehicles are displayed and judged and dates back to the 17th-century France when aristocrats paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris. 

There will be an array of vintage domestic and imported cars from a variety of car and motorcycle clubs that will align the length of Rowan Blvd and a major portion of Main Street.  The show’s newest features are EVs (electronic vehicles), exotic cars, a giant slot racing track, local celebrity cars, and designer wrapped vehicles to show the modern technological advances in the automotive industry.

The 2019 Glassboro Car Show and Food Truck Festival is presented by the Borough of Glassboro and sponsored by  Matt Blatt Mitsubishi, Tag’s Auto Supply, Designer Wraps, Republic Bank, Time Scaffidi Law, Glassboro Clean Communities, and Waterline Auto Spa.

Free parking will be available at the event with signage and parking attendants to direct attendees. This is a rain or shine event.
