Sundown On Depot Car Show

Sundown On Depot Car Show

On May 21, 2016 Sundown On Depot a first time automotive event was held on Depot Street in historic downtown Greeneville, Tennessee. The show was a fund raiser that benefited the Holston United Methodist Home for Children. To help bring in participants for this first show it was held in conjunction with the Annual Iris Festival that was also held in the downtown area. With cash prizes, door prizes and dash plaques the event organizers that were made up of a group of local auto enthusiasts looked for a good turnout. To help boost spectator and participant numbers the historic Capitol Theater ran the classic automotive movie American Graffiti. The Buckner family brought in their two movie related cars that are usually used in autograph sessions with original cast members of the movie, the iconic yellow 1932 Ford coupe and the black 1955 Chevy Bel Air. 

All the needed parts for a great first time event were in place but one and that was the weather. The weather in eastern Tennessee can be very unpredictable and on this day it went from early morning fog to off and on showers. But over 100 die hard supporters of this event said what’s a little rain and came out to show their belief in what the event was benefiting. Over $2,000 was raised for Holston Home on that rainy day in Greeneville and the idea of another show in 2017 was being discussed before the last registered vehicle drove off of Depot Street. More information on a 2017 show will be announced at a later date. Thanks go out to the group of guys that put this show together, the people that brought out their vehicles despite the weather and to the Greene County Partnership for pairing up their Annual Iris Festival with this benefit show.
