Cars and Cannons is a unique, once a year, opportunity to see more than fifty vintage and classic cars inside historic Fort Clinch. The car show is on Saturday, September 25, 2021, 10 am – 2 pm and the public is invited to view these cars inside the walls of this unique 19th-century coastal fort setting. Visiting Fort Clinch State Park is special anytime, but the day of the Cars and Cannons Vintage Car Show is an extra bonus. Attendees will vote for a “People’s Choice Award” among the cars on display.

The regular park entry fee of $6 per vehicle (2 to 8 people) or $4 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.

Do you own a vintage car, 1996 or older, and have an interest in showing your car at this unique 19th-century coastal fort setting? Go to www.friendsoffortclinchinc.org for more information and to register.

All cars must be pre-registered by September 21 and the registration is $35 per car. There will be no day of show registration. This is a cruise-in event and owners are responsible for driving their cars to the park and into the fort. Registered participants receive a one-year membership with the Friends of Fort Clinch which includes 12 FREE park visits for the year.

This classic vintage car show event benefits the Friends of Fort Clinch. The Friends exist to support the preservation of Florida’s natural and cultural resources while providing outstanding recreational and educational opportunities to the public in Fort Clinch State Park. 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 renowned living history program.
