    History:  For over 3 decades, the annual Leesburg Car Show has been a premier family event in historic downtown Leesburg.  The origins of the show go back to a local car club that sponsored and coordinated the event.  For years, students from the old C.S. Monroe Technology Center (Monroe Tech) would volunteer and assist with the show.  This positive partnership evolved with profits from the show being donated to the school as their primary fundraiser.  Eventually, the staff at Monroe Tech assumed full coordination of the event.  When C.S. Monroe Technology Center closed in 2018, the programs became part of the new Academies of Loudoun.  At the Academies of Loudoun, we are proud to continue the tradition of the Leesburg Car Show.  All profits from the event directly support students at the Academies of Loudoun primarily in senior scholarships at the end of the year.  Your support of the Leesburg Car Show and the students at the Academies of Loudoun is greatly appreciated.

    Event Location: Leesburg, VA.  All display vehicles must register and line up at Tuscarora High School, 801 North King Street, Leesburg, VA, 20175.

    Vehicle Requirements:  An emphasis is placed on “classic” cars (25+ years).  While all high-quality vehicles are welcome to participate (regardless of age), only classic cars will be eligible for the specialty awards.  All vehicles, regardless of age, will be eligible for Spectator’s Choice Awards. Motorcycles are also welcome to participate.

    Vehicle Size Limit:  Due to the narrow streets and limited parking available in downtown Leesburg, extra-large/oversized vehicles are not able to participate. Car Show Flyer
