Get ready to be amazed by the impressive display of 135 classic automobiles that will be making their way from Kentucky to Maine. The Great Race Foundation has organized this annual event to showcase beautifully preserved vintage cars. Lucky residents of Binghamton will have the opportunity to witness these vehicles firsthand.

Downtown Binghamton will transform into a vibrant hub of automotive history and nostalgia as the event takes place along Washington Street and near the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena. Visitors will have the chance to see these magnificent vehicles up close, making the event perfect for people of all ages.

From classic American muscle cars to elegant European sports cars, the Great Race shows off a diverse range of automotive gems from a bygone time. Each vehicle represents a piece of history, meticulously restored to its original beauty.

While the event primarily focuses on the display of vintage cars, the Great Race is more than just a static exhibition. Participants will compete in a friendly competition, testing their driving skills and navigational abilities. Along the race route, participants are required to follow precise instructions and time their progress accurately, adding an extra element of excitement to the event.
