Rockledge Car Show
Pop-up Beer Garden

Sunday, 11 September 2016, 4 to 8pm

The annual Rockledge Car Show is truly epic. The entire stretch of Huntingdon PIke in Rockledge, almost 1 whole mile, is shut down to traffic for the car show (ironic we know).

Even if you aren't a gearhead, looking at the cars is really quite interesting.

In addition to the cars, there is fun for the whole family, plus vendors, including us.

Checking out all of those cars is thirsty and hungry work. No worries, we have you covered. In partnership with River Horse Brewing, we will be running a mini-Beer Garden with tables and chairs and beer and food.

Our Beer Garden will be set up on Huntingdon Pike near Robbins Avenue.
