Looking for Father's Day fun? Sully Historic Site hosts an annual antique car show

The Sully Historic Site holds a number of family-friendly events throughout the year. One tradition for more than four decades is its annual Father’s Day event, the Antique Car Show. The 2016 Sully Antique Car Show is held on Father's Day and is co-hosted by the Fairfax County Park Authority and the Model A Ford Club of America. 

Now running for more than 24 years, the event has hundreds of cars on display, including both American and foreign-made antique and classic cars. Additionally, there is more family fun to enjoy including musical entertainment, a flea market (more than 100 vendors according to promotional material) and food. 

The Sully House

A tour of the 1794 house is also included in admission to the event. Admission fees for the antique car show are as follows: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $7 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.
