Registration for the 2022 Monterey Kickoff Presented by Hagerty now open

Where do all the cool kids go to celebrate the beginning of Monterey Car Week? The annual Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff Presented by Hagerty, of course.

Part car show, part celebration, the event returns to the streets of downtown Pacific Grove, California, on August 16 from 3-7 p.m.

Interested in displaying your car? The cost is $30, though you'll also get a goodie bag worth more than the price of entry as a special thank you for participating. As well, we'll have judging and class trophies from some of the classic car world’s top names.

Entries will also be organized into blocks based on the home country of the manufacturer. Currently, there is the German car block presented by FCP Euro and a British car block presented by Moss Motors, with more to be announced soon.

Please note: We have a strict 150-car limit for those interested in entering their ride, so be sure to register now to save your spot.

Don't have a car to show but still want to be part of the fun? Good news: the event is free for spectators.
