Submitted Photos


17 years ago, the Kiwanis Club of Marco Island held its first car show. Seventy cars were on display during that show. Since then, the show has grown to have over 200 classic and vintage cars on display, making it one of the largest and bestattended shows in Collier County. Last year over 3500 patrons attended the show.  

Along with all the awesome classic cars, this year will be a special vehicle, a 2019 Ford GT Super Car. Only 500 of these vehicles will be made and the purchasers have to be qualified in order to buy one. This car will be competition for other high-performance cars like the Lamborghini and Ferrari. 

This year, the Celtic Dancers will return too. They are always a crowd favorite, as well as a performance by the Marco Island Glee Club. Period music will be provided all day by our DJ Steve Reynolds. It is really a fun day for the whole family.  

Trophies will be awarded in several categories the most coveted is the “Darcie Guerin People’s Choice” award for which all patrons can vote.  

So, plan to be at Veterans Park on February 16, and enjoy a fun day for the whole family. This is not only a car show it is a family day with entertainment, music and food. 

The show opens at 9 AM and closes at 3 PM. The spectator fee for this show is $5 with children under ten free.  

100% of the funds collected by the Kiwanis Club are used to support the children of our neighborhood. Last year we donated over $60,000 to the children and schools in our neighborhood.
