Car Show

Car Show

Have you created a masterpiece of mechanical artwork around your LS or current generation LT? If attention to detail and originality are you kinds of things, then the Car Show at LS Fest East is the place for you. We even have an “Under Construction” category for those of you who aren’t quite done with your project yet – we want to see what you’re building!

For 2023, we are adopting a new way of selecting vehicles for awards. Our experienced car show staff will be on hand looking for the details and the Holley Crew will be choosing their favorites as well.

    • LS Fest is a great place to see some of, if not the best LS and current Gen LT vehicles. Our car show is designed to showcase what enthusiasts and builders have been working on giving attention and due credit to all types of builds and projects. We’re all here to have a great time and recognize what our staff feels represents the best in each category.
    • A curated panel of industry professionals, builders, automotive influencers, and content creators are joining us to select a winner for each category.
    • All Car Show participants are granted premiere event parking inside the venue. Every LS Fest Event Registration automatically includes a Car Show spot (Drag Racing, Autocross, Drift, etc.)
    • Each car show participant receives a numbered decal to display on the vehicle. After winners are decided and awards are presented, all category winners will be recognized early Saturday evening with a celebratory cruise around the Burnout Challenge area in front of all the fans! Be present to find out if you are a winner. Please refer to the schedule of events for the specific time. You do not need to be present at the time your car is reviewed. Our staff will be combing the grounds throughout the event.
