Cars and Cannons Coming Up

Cars and Cannons Vintage Car Show is a unique, once-a-year opportunity to see more than 60 vintage and classic cars inside historic Fort Clinch. The car show is on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The public is invited to view these cars inside the walls of this
unique 19th-century coastal fort setting.

Local musicians, Laid Back and 2Js (Jim and Julie Black) are returning for another year. Their music features popular tunes that will add to the festivities. Food and refreshments will be available at the Visitor Center and at food trucks. Keep Nassau Beautiful will have its WaterMonster with free drinking water. Visitors are asked to bring their own reusable water bottles.

The regular park entry fee of $6 per vehicle (2 to 8 people) or $4 per single-occupant vehicle is required, along with $2.50 per person for fort admission. The park is open daily from 8 a.m. to sunset, while the fort is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This classic vintage car show event benefits the Friends of Fort Clinch. Through fundraising and grant acquisitions, the Friends enable restoration projects at historic Fort Clinch, support special events and educational programming, provide tools and equipment to assist park rangers and expand and improve the park’s living history program.
