The 19th Annual Downtown Boise Father’s Day Car Show is like no other– celebrating transportation, both past and future, alongside downtown’s vibrant food and shopping scene, in the heart of Idaho’s beautiful Capital City! 

The Downtown Boise Father’s Day Car Show both celebrates and educates, excites, and intrigues. Treat Dad to brunch, shop for a Father’s Day gift, then browse an exciting display of cars, both classic and electric. Car Show admittance is free to the public.

What’s different about the Downtown Boise Father’s Day Car Show? Downtown Boise is always bustling with people, which means a growing number of transportation options are most visible downtown. The show features dozens of beautiful classic cars dating back decades, plus a surprising variety of today’s most modern electric vehicles. 

Each car has a story, whether it’s the latest in sustainable technology, or the stories of families who have cherished their classic automobile for generations. 

Come see these beautiful cars, share in their stories, and celebrate the father figure in your life! 

This event is FREE to the public to attend!

WHEN: The Car Show will begin at 9:00am and will end at 3:30pm. Award ceremony will be from 3:00pm to 3:30pm.

WHERE: The Car Show will be along Jefferson St in front of the Idaho Capitol building between 6th St & 9th St, on 8th St between Bannock St & State St, and Capitol Blvd between Bannock St & Jefferson St.

“City Go’s mission is to support sustainable transportation in all forms from busing to biking, vanpooling, carpooling and more. Being part of the Father’s Day Car Show is particularly exciting because of our partnership with DBA, which continually supports our work, and because we’re supporting an event where we see shifts toward more sustainable means of transportation.” – Wayne Rysavy, Ph.D., Communications Manager, City Go & Valley Regional Transit
