Held during the famed Monterey Car Week, which brings tens of thousands of owners, collectors, and enthusiasts of automobiles to the Peninsula each August for more than a dozen events. The show schedule runs from noon to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14, 2023, and is free of charge to all spectators. A $100 donation will be accepted from all vehicle entries and donated to our charities.
Following the show, vehicles will gather to cruise around the city's scenic waterfront and beaches for all to see, launching at the TLCS event site, heading towards Lovers Point, then following Ocean View Blvd. to Asilomar State Beach.
The Little Car Show showcases 125 vehicles 25 years and older and features multi-marque mini, micro, steam, electric, and arcane vehicles of 1,800cc displacement or less from around the globe. A "special interest" category offers select limited production, custom, and modified vehicles.
REGISTRATION OPENS SOON.
A panel of five industry professionals will judge vehicle entries, and trophies will be presented during the event for a variety of awards, including The Coveted Big Award.
The Little Car Show is presented by Marina Motorsports, Inc. This 501(c) (03) not-for-profit service organization has donated the better part of $100k to show charities Pacific Grove Youth Center and Veterans Transition Center over the last 13 years.
Located on the Monterey Peninsula in Northern California, the show is held in the charming, seaside community of Pacific Grove, along multiple blocks of Lighthouse Avenue between 19th Avenue and Fourth Avenue.
We encourage you to explore the many shops and eateries that line the streets while visiting the Little Car Show. Minutes away, visit the world-famous 17-Mile Drive that meanders some of the most beautiful shoreline in the world. You may find starfish and mollusks in the tide pools and even catch a glimpse of seals and otters in their natural environment.
