LAWN EVENTS

OVERVIEW

S 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. Presently, we host twenty-five car shows each year. There have been some major changes to our Lawn Event schedule in 2020.



ADDITIONAL DETAILS

In the last year, we’ve learned to pivot (and pivot) and the schedule will still look different (at least at first) but we are hoping that we can return to our regularly scheduled programming of Cars & Coffee and Lawn Events in the late summer. Other events, including driving tours and educational programs, may start earlier depending on the recommendations by the State of Massachusetts.

We plan to kick off smaller Lawn Events in June and extend into the fall. Details regarding events will be rapidly changing week to week and we encourage you to join our mailing list for the latest updates. Registration links to register will be posted soon.

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 prepare for safe in-person events. Every donation counts!

We can’t wait to see you!
