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.


There will be food and beverage available for purchase. Cash only.

If a show is canceled, postponed or changed due to weather it will be posted on this page and our Facebook page at least one day prior to the event. On occasion, we may end an event early due to weather or other circumstances.

Alcohol is NOT permitted at any of our Lawn Events per the Town of Brookline and Brookline Police Department. We reserve the right to check your personal cooler if you are attending our events.
