The show must go on.
(With some modifications.)
Saturday, August 8, 2020
Rain Date: Sunday, August 9, 2020
The 2020 New Hope Automobile Show has been carefully planned this year to adhere to all the COVID-19 pandemic regulations established by our state and local governments as well as the Bucks County Board of Health. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for everyone involved with the show. From our volunteer staff to our vendors, show car owners, and spectators, we must consider the health and safety of all who will be participating in the 2020 New Hope Automobile Show.
In accordance with the aforementioned regulations, we are implementing the following rules to be observed by everyone who enters the show grounds on Saturday (or Sunday if inclement weather postpones the Saturday event).
Tickets will be sold online.
This year, show tickets will be purchased online in advance of the show date. Tickets bought through our website, in advance will be $6.00 this year. Because of social-distancing, we must limit the number of guests on the field. Therefore tickets will be sold in two-hour timed increments:
9am – 11am
11am – 1pm
1pm – 3pm
Tickets may be purchased at the gate on the day of show but the cost will be $10.00 and if a time slot is full you may be turned away. Buying your tickets online, in advance assures your entry at your appointed time slot. Buy tickets.
All spectators MUST wear appropriate face masks.
Please understand that while you may feel you don’t need to wear a face mask for your protection, know that the mask you wear is to protect others around you who may be more susceptible to the coronavirus.
We will have trained health officials from Doylestown Hospital at each of the three entrance gates to remind visitors about social distancing and give out hand sanitizer. A social-distancing coordinator and staff will be enforcing social distancing on the show field.
Each of the visitor routes will be marked in a color corresponding to the gate color where you enter. Maps will be given to visitors as they enter the grounds. Visitors will follow these assigned routes as they make their way through the show. Along each route will be trained ambassadors to monitor social distancing. Each route allows you to see the cars as well as the vendors.
The only way our show got approval to proceed was our pledge to the county health officials that we would aggressively enforce these regulations.
COVID-19 instructions for visitors.
1. All visitors must wear face masks. Be considerate of those around you. You wear the mask to protect others.
2. Please stay to assigned colored paths.
3. Six-foot social distancing must be observed at all times.
4. Please don’t surpass your 2-hour limit.
5. Be sure to vote for your favorite show car before you leave. Your vote counts!
Do spectators and show car owners get refunds if the Show is canceled?
In the Age Of Covid-19, that’s a great question!
Depending on the COVID-19 situation, state, county, or local agencies could add additional limits or withdraw approval for the 2020 New Hope Automobile Show at any time. You’ll agree that the circumstances surrounding such a decision are completely fluid and out of the control of the New Hope Solebury Community Association, the legal nonprofit entity that presents the Show.
What is for sure, though, is that the charities and beneficiaries receiving donations from the proceeds from the Show still rely on our financial support. Therefore, in the event the Show is further limited or canceled by governmental authority, full or partial (treated as a donation) refunds may be requested in writing. Or you may request that your donation be applied to next year’s Show.
No matter what, we would be honored if you would consider your Show admission, vendor, or registration fee as a charitable donation to these worthy causes.
You’ll need to buy tickets in advance this year.
