All-European Show & Shine
September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
See fine European cars and motorcycles on display. Imagine models of Jaguar, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Ducati, BMW, Ferrari, Pantera, Alfa Romeo, Austin Healey and others surrounded by the beauty of the garden.
Guests may walk the 100 acres of gardens or they may take a narrated tram tour for $3 per person, which includes a stop at Kenefick Park. The café will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch and snacks.
Please note that during the All-European Show and Shine, cars are exhibited to the northwest of the rose garden (the furthest part of the garden away from the visitor and education center) and the show ends promptly at 3 p.m. Guests are encouraged to arrive at the event early enough to account for walking times to reach the show site (the staging location takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to reach by food, depending on the speed of the walker).
Admission to the event is included with paid garden admission – $10 for adults and $5 for children age six to 12. Garden members and children under age six are admitted free of charge.
If you have a fine old or new European car or bike and you would like to exhibit in the garden (or you know someone who does), please register online here.
ATTENTION CAR SHOW EXHIBITORS: Cars being exhibited at the show will enter the Lauritzen Gardens property at the back gate, located one block east of 6th and Cedar streets (at 5th and Cedar streets).
