DARE Car Show & Farmer’s Market


This weekend’s Farmers Market in Elmwood Park will be combined with the summer’s second classic car show to raise funds for the local Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program. The joint event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, at Central Park (75th Avenue and Fullerton Avenue).

“Our earlier car show was a big success,” Trustee Angela Stranges said. “We thought families would really enjoy looking at some vintage cars while also getting the chance to purchase some fresh produce at the Farmers Market.”

There is no charge to view the cars, but donations to D.A.R.E. will be accepted. Great prizes will be raffled as well, with the proceeds going to D.A.R.E. Food will be available for purchase from Nottoli’s and Seph’s Sweets. In addition to the vendors, members of the Elmwood Park Fire Department will be roasting fresh sweet corn and donating the proceeds to D.A.R.E.

Registration for the car show begins at 8:30 a.m. Classic car owners can show off their vehicles for free. The Farmers Markets have been held on the second and fourth Sundays of the month starting in June and will continue through October.
