Cast your vote for a Car Show Cruise-In in Historic Downtown Clermont!

Would you like Historic Downtown Clermont to host a Car Show? You can help determine that decision!

EMAIL us your thoughts … Yes …. Send “RESTART” .. No .. Send “PARK IT”…info@clermontdowntownpartnership.com

The Car Show is on a hiatus – a pause until further notice. The event will resume when we secure participants, sponsors, vendors, etc, to cover the cost of putting together an event worthy of our guests! “CHAMPIONS FOR THE CAR SHOWAR SHOW”-type of event — something of which we can all be proud – a “large and in–charge” event similar to that we’ve achieved for our other events including: First Friday Family Food Trucks / Music On Montrose; Weekly Downtown Clermont Farmer’s Market & Merchant Faire; Harvest Festival; Vintage Market & Garden Show; Downtown Clermont Art Festival; Hula-Licioius Food Truck Cook-Off, and others.

We appreciate the support from all of you who have shown your cars / trucks in Historic Downtown Clermont. And, we appreciate those of you (and others) who have attended the Car Show as a spectator.
