The Historic Festival opens with one of longest automotive parades in the Northeast, the Vintage Race Car & Sports Car Parade presented by Salisbury Bank. With bystanders viewing from the roadside, more than 120 cars rally 17 miles through local towns before culminating in a street fair in Falls Village. There, parade-goers enjoy the cars that have lined the streets as well as live music and vendors. 

The Parade

The parade leaves Lime Rock Park at 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2019, making its way along a 17-mile route, including the towns of Lime Rock, Lakeville, Salisbury and Falls Village. Here parade-watchers watch in awe.

Each parade participant contributes $25 each that is donated to a local charity. Do you own a 1975 or older sports car or vintage race car and want to be in the Vintage Race & Sports Car Parade? Visit to apply.
