The New Hope Automobile Show cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns

In the interest of safety to everyone, The New Hope Automobile Show committee, in cooperation with The New Hope-Solebury School District, has decided to cancel the 2020 edition of The New Hope Automobile Show, which was slated for Saturday, Aug. 8.

Over the last 62 years, The New Hope Automobile Show has taken its place as one of the premiere automobile shows in the nation. The show was conceived in 1957 to support the New Hope-Solebury community and the students of the New Hope-Solebury School District.

Through the years, the show has contributed thousands of dollars to student scholarships as well as local charities and service organizations. Hundreds of volunteers, working together with the The New Hope Automobile Show Committee and the New Hope-Solebury School District, dedicate countless hours to make the Show possible.

This year has presented many challenges for the nation and the many organizations who sponsor similar events. Over the past six months, the show committee has worked closely with the New Hope-Solebury School District, the Bucks County Departments of Health and Emergency Management, and New Hope Borough officials in an attempt to put on this year’s show in a safe environment.

Recognizing that COVID-19 is not going away, but resurfacing in strength, the show committee and the New Hope-Solebury School District have re-evaluated the increased risk to students, community, participants, and the many volunteers involved on show day.
Canceling was not an easy decision, and the show committee thanks everyone for their understanding. Refunds will be issued to those ticketholders and registrants indicating that preference at the time of purchase.

The show committee looks forward to seeing all the volunteers, attendees, show car owners and their beautiful cars when we can gather for a safe and successful show in August of 2021.
