Alton Classic Car Show

The Alton Classic Car Show has become a premier event for Alton Lions Club (CIO). The town has been hosting an annual classic car show held in the centre of town since early in the 21st century.

Held in September, it has grown every year (apart from the Covid years) from initially a few cars to today when it fills the High Street. As well as classic cars the day include live entertainment, specialist pop up stalls.

Alton is a traditional Hampshire Market town the town centre is well endowed with hotels, pubs, restaurants, cafes, and tea rooms together with a wide range of retail outlets and service outlets.

The event is held on the third Saturday in September and this year’s event will be on Saturday 16th of September 2023. An organised organised rally will be planned for those who would like to enjoy a trip around rural Hampshire.

The day includes competitions for the various categories of classic cars together with ‘the Best in Show’ which automatically becomes the ‘Cover Car’ for the following year’s show and can be displayed centrally as a Star Attraction.

Funds raised by the event are used to support a local and/or a nominated charity.
