Classics on Main Car Show

Classics on Main on hiatus for this summer

From DOWNTOWN BOWLING GREEN The Classics on Main Car Show is on hiatus for 2019, due to the lack of resources required to organize the event.   The Sentinel Tribune had organized the show the past three years but requested another organization to take over in 2019. The Downtown BG S.I.D. explored the possibility of putting on the show in BG. After reviewing it with the car show committee, board members and some local merchants, the decision was made to put the Classics on Main Car Show on hiatus for 2019. Downtown BG S.I.D. is adding a non-juried car show on July 19, 2019 to add to the excitement of Firefly Nights. This exciting opportunity will keep the comradery alive amongst our car enthusiasts and add additional entertainment for the community. The Car Rally will be held in the Huntington Center parking lot on the corner of Clough and Main St. in Bowling Green, OH. The event will be free. Times, registration and additional information will be listed on our website beginning in June 2019 at Downtown BG S.I.D. would like to thank the Sentinel Tribune, volunteers and car enthusiasts that have helped with Classics on Main over the years.  Please call our office at 419-354-4332 if your organization or car club would like to organize this event for 2020. We would be more than willing to help promote..
