Adirondack Nationals 2017

A wonderful way to end the season.

September 7th-10th are the dates for this year’s Adirondack Nationals Car Show in Lake George, NY. Albany Rods & Kustoms have hosted this show as the Adirondack Nationals since 1988. Their first Nationals Show was held in Glens Falls, NY. The next year the club moved this show to the Fort William Henry Resort in Lake George, NY. With around 1,500 cars entering this show every year, it has become one of the most popular shows in the Northeast.

Apex Auto Magazine will be on hand again the week after Labor Day to cover the entire event for our readers that cannot make it to the show. I encourage you to take the beautiful drive up to the Adirondack area for a great weekend of show cars and great scenery in this small town of Lake George.

During the day, one can walk Main Street and shop the local stores while beautiful show cars cruise up and down all day. Cars line both sides of the street the entire weekend for visitors to enjoy. A short walk down Main Street brings you to Fort William Henry where the show takes place. Show goers will see wonderful looking cars and trucks as they stroll through the show area. The smell of food and the familiar music from the good ole days fill the air as people enjoy the sites.

Along with a huge amount of cars on display, visitors can also make their way to the large vendor area located on the grounds. This show has something for everybody. Dave Kindig from Kindig-It Design will be on hand to talk to fans during this year’s show. Dave’s TV show Bitchin’ Rides aired on the Velocity channel, giving him VIP status in the automotive industry.  

Both Friday and Saturday nights the local authorities shut down Main Street for a few hours of Cruising on Canada Street. This is one thing that makes this show special to its fans. Seeing these cars cruise up and down Main Street is a beautiful site for sure.

Mark you calendars for September 7th-10th, it is a show to remember. You will love it!


I hope to see you there.
