The Old Town Festival of Speed & Style, a celebration of eccentric mid-20th century vehicles, is scheduled to make a comeback this September.

The event started in 2019 and was a success, bringing thousands of visitors from the region to Old Town. The event, sponsored by Burke & Herbert Bank, was scheduled to make a comeback in 2020 but… you know. After several delays, the second annual Old Town Festival of Speed & Style is scheduled for Sept. 5 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

According to a press release for the event, it is slated to include over 100 rare and unusual cars and vintage motorcycles from around the world. The event is free and will span three blocks on lower King Street and around Market Square. There will also be a fashion demonstration from noon to 1 p.m. in which local boutiques and retail will showcase styles with themed cars.

The night before the festival, a “High-Octane Ball” will be held from 7:30-9:30. The celebration is a ticketed event, with proceeds going to benefit local non-profit ALIVE! and the USO.
