BRCC hosts car show June 5

Blue Ridge Community College will host the 16th annual Benefit Car and Trade Show Saturday, June 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Sponsored by the Great Smoky Mountains Region of Antique Automobile Club of America, SkillsUSA and Blue Ridge Community College, the show is open to all makes and models of vehicles, including 2-, 3-, 4-, or 18-wheelers. Vendors and dealers should call to reserve their car’s spot in advance.

Early car registration costs $12, while registering at the gate costs $15. The event is free to the viewing public. Concessions like BBQ, hot dogs and drinks will be available for purchase. Door prizes are also offered.

All proceeds from the event benefit Blue Ridge automotive students in their SkillsUSA competitions, which support career and technical education in the nation’s classrooms.

“This show is such a fun time for our community. People come from all over to see this massive lineup of unique and beautiful cars,” Blue Ridge Automotive Systems Technology instructor Brian Johnson said. “So this not only gives people the opportunity to show off their cars, but it also raises much-needed funding for our students to attend SkillsUSA competitions.”

The show’s location is at the intersection of College Drive and South Allen Road in Hendersonville. The College’s address is 180 W Campus Dr. Flat Rock, NC 28731. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Johnson at (828) 694-1835 or Kim LaRowe at (828) 779-2378.
