The Show has been in New Hope, Pennsylvania since 1957.
So this year is our 60th anniversary! The auto show is held at the New Hope-Solebury High School on Bridge Street (Route 179) in New Hope, Pennsylvania. New Hope is located on the Delaware River in beautiful Bucks County. It’s about one hour north of Philadelphia and just 35 minutes west of Princeton, New Jersey. Get directions. New Hope is a wonderful riverside town sharing the scenic Delaware River with Lambertville over on the New Jersey side. Both of these villages have terrific galleries, antique shops, inns, restaurants, taverns, and charming bed and breakfasts.
