Fun on Father’s Day: 42st Annual Sully Antique Car Show in Chantilly
Every year the Sully Historic Site holds a number of family-friendly events during every season. One tradition is its Father’s Day event, the Antique Car Show. The 2015 Sully Antique Car Show will be held on June 21, co-hosted by the Fairfax County Park Authority and the Model A Ford Club of America.
Now in its 42nd year, 2015's event will have more than 400 cars on display. Visitors can see both American and foreign-made antique and classic cars. This event also will feature musical entertainment, a flea market, food and, as customary at Sully, some fun for the kids. The historic 1794 house will also be open for tours, which is included in the car show's admission price. No reservations are required for this event.
Admission fees for the antique car show show are as follows: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $6 for children. As always, parking is free. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
In general I've found Sully’s themed days to be very family-friendly and typically a nice day out (one year I will get to this car show!). We've attended the World War II Weekend a couple of times, the Civil War Encampment Weekend, and I always enjoy the different holiday-themed weekends held during the winter holidays.
Sully Historic Site is located just off Route 28, a few miles south of Dulles Airport and across the highway from the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum (Smithsonian). Sully Historic Site's address is 3650 Historic Sully Way, Chantilly, Va.
