Deering Estate Vintage Auto Show

The Deering Estate, in collaboration with the Antique Automotive Club of America – South Florida Region, will host the 8th annual Vintage Auto Show on Sunday, January 10, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Guests can enjoy a relaxing day outdoors as they stroll down memory lane. Car enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy a variety of vintage cars, from 1969 and older, displayed on the historic grounds of the Deering Estate.

As a salute to Charles Deering, first chairman of the International Harvester Company, our 1950 International Harvester Truck will also be on display.

The Harvester Truck, which was donated to the Deering Estate Foundation, was purchased brand new in Chicago by Marion Deering McCormick, Charles Deering's daughter. After Mrs. McCormick passed away in 1965, the truck passed to her son and was maintained by the McCormick family until they donated it to the Deering Estate Foundation.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children (ages 4-14). Purchase tickets online. Free for Deering Estate Foundation Members (with promo code). Become a member today!
