Annual Illinois Beach Hotel Charity Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show

September 02, 2019

Rev up your engines because it’s officially that time of the year when Illinois Beach Hotel brings the party from the coast to the parking lot with The Annual Illinois Beach Hotel Charity Car, Truck, & Motorcycle Show. This free yearly event is a car lovers dream and this year will be better than ever.

The doors officially open at 9:00 am and we expect to have most cars in place for viewing by 11:30. Vehicle owners will be pitted against each other in a variety of categories so that new local legends may be born. Spectating is always free, but you’re more than welcome to enter the contest. The $15 entry fee will be donated in full to TLS Veterans so you can feel good knowing you’re showing off while also giving to a good cause.

Like any good car show and party, there will be live music, outdoor food sales, and luxurious dining available at the Lakeside Restaurant. Enjoy a delectable brunch as the antiques and motorcycles dazzle you and your family. We look forward to having you at this very special event!
