Celebrity hits Madison Classics Summer Elkhorn.


Madison Classics 31st annual Summer Elkhorn event held at the Walwoth Co Faigrounds in  Elkhorn Wi, was immortalized by TV host Dennis Gauge. The popular show among many hobbyists, My Classics Car, with Dennis Gage has been on for decades. People came out in droves to have a chance at getting Dennis Gage to pay attention to their cars and a shot at getting on his tv show. Madison Classics is grateful to have been chosen as a place of interest for filming an episode of My Classic Car, and this was a chance for us to showcase our Summer event. Dennis Gage has a enthusiasm for the hobby that is unmatched.


Many may know the history behind our Spring and Fall Jefferson Auto Shows & Swap Meets, but not many know about the history behind our third show - Summer Elkhorn. Once the Spring and Fall Jefferson Swap Meets were well established, Gary decided to start another swap meet.  It was on the return trip from a car show that he drove by the Walworth County Fairgrounds on Hwy 11 in Elkhorn, WI. He knew right away that this location had what it would take to provide a great venue for a swap meet and car show.


The first "Summer Elkhorn" was held in August of 1986 and has since grown into a fantastic two day summer event.  With a combination of black top, gravel, grass and trees the Walworth County Fairgrounds is a great place to spend a weekend.  The two day car show, swap meet and car corral draws hundreds of cars each day and crowds of over 15,000 spectators.  The vending area is comprised of 1,100+ swap spaces and includes indoor spaces as well. The Cars for Sale Corral has proven to be a great place to browse hundreds of vehicles for sale including classics and late model vehicles. 


The 32nd Annual Summer Elkhorn event will be held August 5 - 6, 2017 at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Elkhorn, WI.  This year's featured vehicles are all Trucks, but as with all Madison Classics events, all makes and models are welcome.


Don't forget our Fall Jefferson Swap Meet will be held on September 22-24, 2017 and will be featuring all Camaros and Chevelles.  It's a tradition!  www.madisonclassics.com
