About the Show

In 2005 Orinda resident Chip Herman and John Vanek, backed by Orinda Motors, partnered together to start the Orinda Classic Car Show as a way to bring together the local classic car community and to raise money for local charities including  Seniors Around Town transportation program,  Educational Foundation of Orinda, and the Orinda Historical Society. Over the past 14 years, more than $600,000 has been raised for local charities.

2019 15th Annual Orinda Classic Car Show to Celebrate Classic Cars.

Posted on May 15, 2019 in News and Announcements | Comments Off on 2019 15th Annual Orinda Classic Car Show to Celebrate Classic Cars.

The 2019 Orinda Classic Car Show Weekend with its Saturday Car Show and Friday Party before it, will again celebrate the history and excitement of  classic cars. The 2019 car show will be on Saturday, September 7th starting at 10:00 a.m. and the Friday Party will begin at 5:30 p.m. on September 6th at the beautiful new Orinda Arts and Garden Center. Online car exhibitor entries and Friday party ticket sales are now available. Enter your car early this year, since last year’s show was quickly sold out. The same advice holds for early party reservations, so mark your calendar and make plans to attend. The Orinda Car Show benefits local charitable causes, so the fun it provides is also helping your community.

Porsche & Station Wagon Owners: Enter your Car in the show!

This year’s show will feature a special exhibit of classic Porsche autos and a second special exhibit of Classic Station Wagons. As we assemble these two exhibits, we are seeking owners with such cars to contact us about having their car featured in the exhibit. If you’d like to share your car’s beauty with the thousands who attend the show, please email Bill Waterman, Show Chairman at

When you enter your vehicle and participate by attending The Orinda Car Show, you make a difference in the lives of so many Seniors. Watch the below video to hear their story of how the “Orinda Seniors Around Town” rides program makes their lives better.
