New Hope Auto Show marks 70th birthday

Posted

Seventy years ago, the New Hope-Solebury High School needed a gym, and dedicated neighbors stepped up to raise the money. They came together as the New Hope-Solebury Community Association and put together a competitive horse show as a fundraiser. Eight years later, they embraced The New Hope Automobile Show and a Bucks County tradition was born.

The New Hope Automobile Show is now one of the most celebrated classic and antique auto shows in the country. Registrants compete for the coveted awards, visitors flock into town from all over, and most important of all, the New Hope-Solebury Community Association raises money for our students, schools, and area non-profit organizations.

Since its founding, the New Hope-Solebury Community Association has raised over $1.3 million for high school senior scholarships, helping generations of local students advance their education and pursue their dreams. Additional support has contributed to the success of the local hospital and fire companies, scouting and sports teams, and local charities.

“Allow me to say thank you to the spectators and registrants, the sponsors and volunteers, for supporting such a worthy cause,” said New Hope Borough Council President Connie Gering. “And a special thank you to everyone at the New Hope-Solebury Community Association on its 70th birthday, for your continued devotion to making our community a great place to live, work and play.”

The New Hope Automobile Show remains active throughout the year, offering a free Autumn Cars and Coffee meet-up on Sunday, October 13. The slate of 2020 activities includes the Every Car Road Rally on July 26, and the 63rd edition of The New Hope Automobile Show Aug. 8 and 9, 2020.
