3rd Annual Charity Car Show and Music Festival Saturday, Aug. 27 in Cambridge
Presented by Rusty’s Audiomotive, the indoor and outdoor show will feature between 80 and 100 cars, trucks, bikes, according to Rusty Elliott, one of the event’s coordinators.
Eliott says the event will also feature two stages with area live acts including Heartside, Kelsey Abbott, Pete Baker, Red Bullett, Summer Snead, Wesley Spangler, Black Dog Alley, Bobby Reed and Emma Myers.
Also on hand will be vendors, food and alcohol, a silent raffle, auctions and plenty of kids’ activities, including games and prizes, Elliott says.
“It’s a family event,” says Elliott. “That’s why we’re doing things for the kids to have a good time. We wanted to make it so you won’t need to take them to the babysitter. You can bring your kids right along.”
All proceeds from the 3rd Annual Charity Car Show and Music Festival benefit Sailwinds Park and the JDRF, a global organization that raises awareness and funds research for Type 1 diabetes. According to Elliott, the JDRF is a cause that is “near and dear” to the heart of event co-coordinator David Callahan, whose eldest son has Type 1 diabetes.
Past years’ shows were held in front of Advance Auto Parts in the Shoal Creek Mall Shopping Center on Route 50 in Cambridge. But Elliott says the need for more space led to this year’s show being held at Sailwinds Park, which is a larger venue.
Admission to Saturday’s event is free but donations are welcome, Elliott says.
