On the first Saturday following the 4th of July, a large group of German cars, owners, and enthusiasts gather at the Gilmore Car Museum for the largest all-German Car show in the United States. Bring your friends and family (including pets)! This car show features all of your favorite German marques and everything from daily drivers to weekend treasures - including Audi, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen. Our event is presented by Orrin B. Hayes Mercedes-Benz, Sharpe BMW, Porsche Grand Rapids (Fox Motors).
The annual event attracts hundreds of vehicles and nearly 2,000 visitors. In 2019, 380 gleaming German cars worth well over ten-million dollars were on display at the Gilmore Car Museum. The GCM drove a stunning recreation of an 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen around the show grounds. In addition to all the cars, guests enjoyed a strolling oom-pah band, German food and German beverages.
Unfortunately due to the global pandemic, the 2020 show was not held. We look forward to an even bigger and better show on July 10, 2021. Plan to join us!
All proceeds benefit the Gilmore Car Museum, and include general admission to all museum exhibits.
