Antique Car Parade

Festival Details - "Antique Car Parade"...

Start: Monday, September 25, 2023 10:00AM
End: Monday, September 25, 2023 1:00PM

Bring your Antique Car and join the Antique Car Parade Led by the Iconic Batmobile - Coming to the Santa Ynez Valley!

Buckle up for a time-traveling adventure as the original TV Batmobile, a true automotive legend designed in 1966 by the legendary George Barris, gears up to lead a string of classic vintage cars through the streets of Buellton, Solvang, and Santa Ynez. Organized by the Santa Ynez Chamber, Visit Buellton, Los Olivos Chamber, and Solvang Conference and Visitor's Bureau in conjunction with the Antique Automobile Club of America's Western Divisional Tour, this wonderous spectacle will take place on Monday, September 25th beginning at 10 am.

Dedicated to "sharing smiles", in addition to unique and rare tour cars visiting from throughout the U.S., antique gems owned by locals are also invited to join the parade route as it passes by business communities, schools and senior communities.

The Parade route concludes at the Santa Ynez Carriage Museum on Sagunto Street at 12 PM in a festive "free-to-the-public" event where the public will have the chance to get up close and personal with the Batmobile and other magnificent vehicles. While George Barris passed in 2015, his daughter, Joji Barris will be on hand to provide first-hand insights into the history and unique perspective of her father's legacy in automotive design. Gourmet Box Lunches are available to purchase in advance for this lunchtime event for $25.

All local schools, including homeschools, are invited to participate via fun Batmobile/Antique Car poster/art contests and an opportunity to schedule field trips to watch the parade and visit the cars on display. Bat-capes, participation ribbons, and other goodies will be provided to schools that participate on a first-come first-serve basis. Contact your local chamber to sign up.

For those who appreciate vintage automobiles and wish to be part of this historic tour, there's no better opportunity to relish the past while making cherished memories. Sign up to enter your classic car in the parade and/or purchase an optional Gourmet Box Lunch to enjoy at the Carriage Museum by visiting this link. Or, simply be dazzled! Come out and watch the cars as they make their way thru the tour route and meet us at the Santa Ynez Carriage Museum for an unforgettable opportunity to experience this unique piece of history.
