Want to celebrate the start of Monterey Car Week with the cool kids? Look no further than our Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff presented by Hagerty.

This year's event returns to beautiful Pacific Grove, California, on August 16 from 3-7 p.m.

Want to show off your car? Registration costs only $30, though only 15 of the 150 allotted spots currently remain open at the time of writing. Just want to spectate? That’s free, and we'll welcome an unlimited number of guests (so make sure you bring your friends, too).

What's new for 2022? We have more partners this year than ever before, which means enhanced goodie bags and even more chances to win valuable prizes for entrants.

Moss Motors, FCP Euro, Centerline and National Parts Depot will present blocks of cars based on country of origin.

Expect live music during the show, with announcements, judging, results and awards broadcast via the PA system.

I attended the Inaugural "Monterey Kick Off Party" out in Carmel Valley at the Folktale WInery and the second year as well, in my classic Mini. Lauren Fix, the Car Coach, did a film about Car Week in 2014 that features my '72 Mini Clubman saloon and my friend's '62 Austin Cooper as the first vehicles shown then she goes around through the Kick Off Party filming other entries.
