Blackhawk Museum brings back its Father's Day Car Show

11th annual car show celebrates Danville dads

The Blackhawk Museum's 11th annual Father's Day Classic Car Show is returning this Sunday to celebrate Danville dads with music and a diverse collection of cars from across the Tri-Valley.

Organizers encourage residents to bring their own classic hot rods, muscle cars and collectibles to show off at the event, or just come check out the variety of vehicles that will be on display.

A diverse set of cars will be showcased, and in honor of Father's Day, dads can register their favorite car for the show, regardless of make or model.

Admission to the show itself is free but car registration costs $30 on the day of the event, or $20 if car lovers take advantage of the early bird special and register online before Saturday, June 16. Vehicle registration the day of the event begins at 7 a.m.

The first 100 drivers who register will receive free admission to the Blackhawk Museum and a goodie bag. Standard ticket prices for the museum are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, students and veterans. Entry is free for active duty personnel and kids 6 and under.

Cars are not the day's only form of entertainment. During the morning, local band Juke Joint will perform their 1960s-era classic soul and R&B music from 9 a.m. until noon.

Scott’s Catering from Walnut Creek will be providing participants with a brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the museum's automotive dining room. Tickets to the brunch are sold separately from the car show and reservations must be made via email at or by calling 934-0598. Brunch is $85 for adults and $35 for children, with all funds to benefit the museum.

The Father's Day Car Show will begin at 8 a.m. and extend until noon at the Blackhawk Museum, 3700 Blackhawk Plaza Cir. in Danville.

The museum itself, which currently has displays on the Spirit of the West and Art of Africa in addition to its automotive gallery, will remain open until 5 p.m.
