Muscle Cars to

Classics—Hickory High Band

offers community Car Show!


When it comes to cars, which style grabs your attention? Perhaps you enjoy the muscle cars or road runners. How about antiques or the classics? Or do you prefer the sports, performance and exotic cars?  You might even prefer motorcycles!


Whatever strikes your auto fancy, you will have the chance to view all the favorites presented by community members and beyond during the upcoming Hickory High Band Car Show, scheduled for Saturday, April 29 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at Hickory High.


All car and motorcycle owners are invited to share their “dream wheels” during the show. Awards will be given at the close of the event—including the Mayor’s Trophy, the Superintendent’s Trophy, the Principal’s Trophy, the Director’s Trophy, and the People’s Choice Award. 


And the community car show is not just about cars.  There will be live bands performing including the HHS Jazz Band, the HHS Drumline and others.


The family-friendly event will include fun activities for children of all ages from face painting to competitive games. Vendors will offer smoked BBQ (with all the sides) and there will be a bake sale.

According to the HHS band conductor, Bobby Cotter, this event is designed for the entire community—family members of every age. “We really want this fundraiser to be more about the community—getting everyone engaged through a celebration event that offers good times for all,” said Cotter. “These types of events bring people together—gathering to enrich our lives at school and in the community.”

The car show is open to anyone who would like to bring their car or motorcycle.  The registration fee is $15 in advance for cars and motorcycles (register online: or $20 on the day of the event. Vendors are also invited to participate during this community event and register through

The show will be located in the parking lot next to the HHS gym/football stadium. General parking will be available in the larger parking lot at the front of the school (near Café Rule and Celery Stalk apartments).

Other than the registration fees for participants presenting their cars and motorcycles, the HHS Band Car Show is free to the general public.

“We’ve had a great response so far, and we are looking forward to a large number of cars participating in this event,” said Cotter. “We are truly very excited to offer this fun-filled day to the community!”
