Q:  Do all of the cars have to stay in place until 3:00?
AYes.  This is both for the safety of the general public and for the vehicle entered.  We also strongly discourage people from revving their engines during the show.

Q:  Will the show vehicles be allowed to put up any pop-up tents, canopies, or umbrellas?
AUnfortunatey, no they may not.  This is due to safety and liability issues that may arise.  There have been many instances in the past where one of these items have toppled and caused damage to a display vehicle.  We do, however, allow hand-held umbrellas.  If the weather is sunny and hot, we advise anyone attending to plan accordingly.

Q:  Can I bring my dog to the show?
AWhile we love our four-legged friends, Knott's has a strict policy regarding pets on the premises, however they do allow service animals.

AIf you wish to park with your friends or car club, we recommend that you get in line as a group and enter the show together.  There are no reserved spaces.

Q:  Can I tow my car into the show?
ANo.  We will not have any additional space available to accomodate a tow vehicle. 

Q:  How soon can registered show vehicles get in line?
AMany of our volunteers arrive before dawn on show day and have noticed cars beginning to line up.  We recommend arriving as early as you are able to, in order to enter and be parked in your class quickly.

Q:  If I have a question regarding my entry, prior to the day of the show, who would I contact?
AOur contact information is located in the box to the left, just underneath the map.  You can call us or send us an email.  We will do our best to respond to you as quickly as possible.

Q:  We plan on bringing the family and staying near the park.  Is there a hotel discount available?
AYes.  There is a discount code available on our website for the Knott's Berry Farm Resort Hotel.

Q:  I have a really cool display sign that I want to show next to my car.  Will I be able to?
