2020 Auto Fair Canceled
After considerable deliberation, the Friends of Charity Auto Fair Steering Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 auto fair in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe the health and safety of the public must come first. The Governor’s plan for reopening West Virginia does not specify a timeline for movie theaters, sporting events and concerts nor gatherings over twenty-five people. This makes planning our event extremely problematic. This was a difficult decision for everyone involved, but we feel this is the correct choice. We hope to see everyone again in 2021.
CRUISE IN FOR A CAUSE
The Friends of Charity Auto Fair, formerly the Friends of Coal Auto Fair, is one of the state's premier car show and festivals. Held on the spacious grounds of the Raleigh County Memorial Airport in Beckley, West Virginia, the show features hundreds of rods, customs, classics, muscle cars, motorcycles, tuners, and trucks from all years. Additionally you will find arts and crafts vendors, local business representatives, and food vendors. The event is concluded with a Saturday Night Concert featuring musical performances by well-known performers and up & coming future stars.
Since the event's inception, the goal for the Auto Fair has been to help raise funds for local charitable organizations to boost the economy and shed light on what these organizations do to make our area a better place to live, work and play. Thanks to our sponsors, participants and patrons, the show continues to be successful in accomplishing these objectives.
Proceeds of the Friends of Charity Auto Fair support Hospice of Southern West Virginia and Brian's Safehouse.
