Perkasie Borough and the Perkasie Town Improvement Association announce the 2018 Under the Stars Car Show
Date: Saturday August 18th, 2018
Time: Check in and day-of registration: 3pm-5pm. Show: 5pm-9pm
Exhibitor fee: $15 until 8/16/18. ($20 day of show)
Free to the Public
Now in its 20th year, “Under the Stars” is one of the region’s premier car shows. Presented this year by Perkasie Borough in partnership with the Perkasie Towne Improvement Association, Perkasie’s beautiful downtown streets will play host to over 400 antique, classic and custom vehicles and the show attracts 4,000+ visitors from across the region.
The Perkasie car show, a favorite for residents and regional visitors, has undergone changes over its 20 years, while growing and becoming increasingly successful for exhibitors and visitors alike. The show was originally conceived when the Perkasie Olde Towne Association (POTA) and the Sellersville-based car club, The Good Time Motorvators worked in partnership with the Borough to create the event and draw visitors to Perkasie as part of the town’s economic development agenda. As that redevelopment agenda progressed POTA’s mission and direction changed and, in 2014, the Borough took on the full responsibility of working with The Good Time Motorvators to run the by then successful Under the Stars show. The show has continued to grow in size and reputation, and will evolve again this year as The Good Time Motorvators move on to other endeavors, and a new partnership is ushered in.
“Our members have very much enjoyed presenting the Under the Stars show for so many years”, notes Dennis Williams, President of The Good Time Motorvators. “It is gratifying to know that we leave a strong foundation for future success, and we know the show will continue to go from strength to strength”.
Charles Brooks, Perkasie Borough Council Member and Chairman of the Borough’s Economic Development Committee echoes Mr William’s sentiments, as he looks forward to a deeper partnership with Perkasie-based automotive businesses. “We’ve had a wonderful relationship with The Motorvators over the years, and we wish them well in their endeavors. We’re always seeking ways of supporting economic development in the Borough, and we have been working with the Perkasie Towne Improvement Association (PTIA) to bring together an exciting collaboration with Perkasie’s established and successful community of businesses in the automotive industry.”
Perkasie’s car care community has been involved with the show for many years, providing sponsorship, trophies and giveaways as well as exhibiting vehicles and opening their parking lots for show parking. This year, the PTIA has been working with a number of local automotive businesses to deepen their involvement and visibility at the show. This year, these businesses will provide staffing and other resources, and will judge and present awards at the show. This new partnership, under the umbrella of the PTIA, includes A&T Chevrolet-Subaru, Bucks Co. Auto Care, Ed’s Service Station, Grandview Service Center, Joe Davis Auto Sport, Kramer’s Auto Service, Ragtops & Roadsters, and Second Street Speed. Penn Community Bank and QNB continue their generous event sponsorship this year.
“We are delighted to facilitate the involvement of Perkasie’s automotive business community in the Under the Stars Car Show” enthuses Hope Fisher, spokeswoman for the Perkasie Towne Improvement Association, “and we look forward to working with them and the Borough to create another amazing event in 2018”.
Businesses have the opportunity to reach car show participants by providing promotional items or marketing materials for 500 event goody bags. All items for the goody bags are due at Perkasie Borough Hall by August 10th.
Advance registration for exhibitors is open until 8/16/18 at www.perkasierec.com. A mail-in paper form is available at Borough Hall or on the Borough’s website: http://perkasieborough.org/our-events/under-the-stars-car-show/. The first 200 vehicles to register in advance will receive dash plaques. Up to date information for exhibitors and visitors to the show can also be found on the Borough’s Under the Stars event Facebook page.
