ince 1927, the Carriage House has been the setting for various lawn events and other car related activities. The Lawn Event season grew out of a Sunday afternoon tradition begun by the Anderson family, who would open the doors to the Carriage House so that the general public could admire their growing collection of American and European cars.
Normally, we host lawn events almost every Saturday and Sunday from May-October. Our Lawn Event season features events from every marque and era. Italian, German, British, American, Custom, Tuner, Alternative Fuels, Trucks, Hot Rods and European Motorcycles will all be on display at different times throughout the season.
In the last year, we’ve learned to pivot (and pivot) and the schedule will be smaller in 2021 but we are hoping that we can return to our regularly scheduled programming in 2022.
We are kicking off Lawn Events in June and extend into the fall. We continue to be thrilled with how many of you have supported us through this difficult time. Whether it be through a donation to our Annual Appeal, participating in our virtual programming, or even just attending one of our driving events with a positive attitude. We salute YOU!
If you can, please consider donating to the Museum using this link. These donations will help us continue hosting lawn events. Every donation counts!
We can’t wait to see you!
