Kansas City car show schedule for August 29, 30, 31; September 1, 2, 2012

The closer we get to the end of the car show season in Kansas City, the bigger the car shows seem to get. And this weekend may be the biggest, because the Goodguys Mid-Western Nationals is making its annual trip to Kansas Speedway. This show is a monster. Look for 1,000 cars, model cars, autocross, car corral, swap meet, vendor booths, and much more. There is no way you can go to this one and not see something you like.

And if that isn’t enough, the Greaserama is also taking place at the Boulevard Drive-In. It may be a little weird, a little crusty, a little freaky, but it is one of the best events out there.

Looking for something else; maybe a race or smaller car cruise? Check out the complete Kansas City Labor Day weekend car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for August 29, 30, 31, September 1, 2, in the calendar below.
