Upcoming Central Ohio Car Events for June 15 – 21

For the first time this season, there's a Central Ohio car event every day of the week. As per usual, the events could change as we get closer to the weekend.

This week will see the return of the Der Dutchman cruise-ins. Since this will be a special kickoff to the cruise-ins, Wayne Nisly is asking everyone interesting in attending to RSVP via email to

News and Notes:

There is positive news regarding the 38th Annual Classic Auto Show and Cruise-In scheduled for August 20-22 in Dublin, Ohio. Last week the Dublin City Council approved all permit requests along with doubling their grant to help procure PPE and market the event. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the show is a GO!

Creative Towing and the Advanced Auto Parts store in Marysville, Ohio hosted their third show of the season on Friday. With picture-perfect weather, the show had a good turn out with 47 registered cars. Over $500 was raised to help with medical expenses for Jeff Shankle's business partner.

On Sunday, Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers hosted a show at the VFW Post 8794 in Whitehall, Ohio. The event registered 139 vehicles. Best of Show honors went to Pam Shankle with a 1936 Plymouth Business Coupe.

We should learn the fate of the Goodguys PPG Nationals this week. A decision as to whether or not the event will take place as scheduled will be made no later than June 17 according to the GoodGuys website.

UPDATE: It's official. The Goodguys PPG Nationals has been canceled for 2020.

The Save the Dates for 2020 page underwent a major clean up this week. ALL the canceled events have been removed. This should make it easier to find shows and cruise-ins still on the schedule as the page was becoming a sea of red cancellations.

      Hi Scott, I just read about the cancellation on the Goodguys website. I'm not surprised. I couldn't see how the Ohio Expo Center could cancel the state fair and still allow Goodguys to go on.

    It’s 5pm on Thursday and it is ‘Forest Gump in Vietnam’ raining over here. First time the weather forecast has been right this year. Booooooooo.

      I was going to try to be there by 6 PM, however, a friend already at the cruise-in said the rain had sent everyone home. Hopefully, better weather next week.
