The first weekend of events is two weeks away. As promised, here is the 2019 Save the Dates Part Two. Those events with an asterisk * after their location have been added to the list since part one.

A few things to point out:

  1. The 2019 schedule for the Auto Smarts Radio Cruise and Ride series is being finalized. I'm told it should be out very soon.
  2. Jack Maxton's Friday Cruisin' Flyer for 2019 has not been made public at the time of this posting. Last year it arrived in my mail towards the end of April. I was told last fall that all the bands were booked for 2019 so I expect to see the flyer soon.
  3. It looks like the Arthritis Foundation will only be sponsoring two shows this year -- the big Dublin Show at the end of June and the downtown Delaware show in July. I've seen no mention of an August show at the Honda dealership in Marysville. Rumor has it the dealership has changed owners and that may explain why the show dropped off this year's schedule. If you have any information about why this show is or is not happening, please post it in the comment, section.
  4. This is by no means a complete list of events for 2019. The events listed are ones that I have been able to confirm either through emails sent to me or through information that's already posted to the internet. There are a lot of organizations that won't "officially" announce their event until later in the season. See point number five for the most up-to-date listing of events in the area.
  5. The weekly Upcoming Events postings will start back up the first week in April. Login to this site every Tuesday or Wednesday for a list of events happening around Central Ohio for the upcoming week. Rube's Cruisin' News (614-274-6008) is another excellent source for weekly event information.

Thought I'd get a jump on the 2019 car show season by posting a list of shows I've received information about or have been announced for this coming year. This should give everyone a chance to start planning for this season's events with some "Save the Dates" to put on your calendar.

I plan to update the list with a Part Two sometime in mid-March.

Without further ado, here's Part One in chronological order:

The Mid Ohio Cruisers will host the first car show of 2019 this Saturday, January 19.

Their annual Snowball Cruise will take place at the Burger King Restaurant located at 1044 Delaware Avenue (Rt 36), Marysville, Ohio from 2-4 PM.

If this year's event is anything like past years, there will be door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and awards for the "Favorite" three vehicles.

The weather forecast for Saturday doesn't look very promising right now, but we all know Ohio weather can change on a dime. If nothing else, come out and hangout with your friends for a couple hours. I plan to be there.

Well everyone, the time has come.  There is just one more car show left for 2018.  

This will be the last Upcoming Events post for this year.  These posts will resume again next spring. 

Look for a recap of the season with my Good, Bad, and Ugly for 2018  coming soon.  You won't want to miss it.

Unless events pop-up from Facebook like they did last week,  this is all I can find for this weekend.

Bullfrog Auto Spa in Johnstown is having a Thanksgiving food drive and car show on November 17.  This is the last show that I'm aware of for the season.

Only two more weeks left in the season.

This is all I could find for this weekend.  There a three events next weekend and then we're finished until 2019.

UPDATE:  Big thanks to Arch Mayer who sent several more events going on  this weekend. Advanced Auto on Sawmill Rd is having a Cars and Coffee on Saturday with a special guest appearance by Graham Rahal.  Also on Saturday, Columbus Cars and Coffee hosted by Byers Imports is holding their last Cruise-In of the year.  Tansky Toyota is having an "End of the Season" meet at their used car facility on Sunday.

I was alerted to another show scheduled for November 17th in Johnstown, Ohio.  This show will extend the season by one more week than previously thought.  I'll post info about it as we get a little closer to the event date.

I know of five events still on the schedule after this weekend.  Two the weekend of November 3-4 and three the following weekend.

The last show of the year looks to be the C-Town Cruisers Veterans Day Cruisin' on November 11.

All the events I could find this week are scheduled for Saturday. Thank goodness OSU is playing a night game.

I counted seven events still on the schedule after this week so don't put those cars away just yet.

UPDATE: Clement Thun was kind enough to send me two more events for this weekend.  One of them is on Sunday so you don't have to watch football all day.

The season is winding down fast. This is all I could find for this week.

The Dee Hosler show is listed on the Crusin' Times website.  I can't find any other information about the show except what's been posted there.

Looking forward, there are still shows scheduled up through November 11th so don't put those cars away just yet.

This week will see the final shows and cruise-ins of the season for Der Dutchman, Vintage Auto Club of Delaware, Rod Knockers, Roundtown Cruisers, and Richwood Bank.

The last major auto show for this year will be Colo's Classic Car Show on Sunday.  Last year the event had over 1500 cars.   If the weather is nice, expect another big turn out.
