History of the Event
In 1993, a few friends were sitting in historic Elliots Bar and thought that Danville would be a nice venue to have a hot rod and classic car show and a great way to stimulate business for the downtown merchants. They rolled up their sleeves, went through the appropriate channels to kick it off, and a car show was born! Little did they know back then how big this event would become.
We are now celebrating our 23rd year and entertaining more than 30,000 visitors, residents, and consumers during this 2 show event. People from around the nation call to find out the dates of the show and plan their vacations around The Danville Hot Summer Nights Car Show. There are people who have specifically built or purchased a hot rod or a classic just to have the pride of showing their car at this fabulous Danville event!!
Stop by our Headquarters Booth
Our Headquarters booth is located at the intersection where Diablo Road meets Hartz Avenue.....look for our sign & tent! There will also be a Commemorative Collector T-Shirt Booth where memorabilia (shirts, sweatshirts and tops) may be purchased. Personnel are in attendance to answer any question you may have or to lend any assistance that might be needed.
The Danville Police, Fire & Rescue personnel are truly the Finest! This is a family event for all to enjoy and when we deal with crowds that may swell to 15,000 plus guests, we want to be prepared for any unexpected emergency.
