  1. My husband and I have been coming to the State Center Car Show for years. My husband used to work for Earl and Helen Goecke at Jay-Kee Trailers.
    We have in the past received application in the mail or just came over and I don’t think we have ever had to pay extra for not having the entry there by May 31st. I have printed off the Car Show application and it will be put in the mail tomorrow (June 15) since it is 8:46 PM now and hoping you get it by Friday.


    • Hello!
      You are still able to show up on Saturday without pre-registration, as we realize sometimes its the weather that dictates whether people will show up. If we get your application in the mail before Saturday, I’ll make sure we get it to the State Center Peace Officers Association who are now running the car show this year. You won’t need to worry about paying extra. We thank you for your continued patronage of our car show and festival and hope to see you Saturday!
