CAPAC — Downtown Capac will be the destination for classic car enthusiasts this Sunday, Sept. 25. That’s when the 2022 Scholz Autofest, marking its 28th year, will draw vintage vehicle owners and admirers. Hours for the car and truck show are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Event spokesperson Randy Schultz said everyone who enters the show will receive a plaque.
“We’ll also be handing out six trophies and local dignitaries including the village president, police chief and St. Clair County Sheriff will be giving those to their top choices,” Schultz said.
Participants will also have their shot at $25 giveaways every half hour too.
Registration begins at 6 a.m. at the American Legion Hall on Main Street.
A swap meet will be stationed at the vacant lot at the corner of Church and Main streets. A DJ will be located at the corner of Main and Mill streets and attendees can enjoy a range of food and beverages for purchase as well.
In prior years, the show was primarly held on school grounds but this time the show and related events will center along Main Street in downtown Capac.
Main Street will initially be closed between Meier and Park streets that day but that could change based on the number of vehicles participating.
This year’s Autofest is being billed as creator Carl Scholz’s “one last hurrah” but Schultz said a local business has pledged to take over organizing the event for the future.
