The classic, hot rod and custom cars, trucks and motorcycles are the main attraction this September at the Denton Main Street Association’s (DMSA) Arts, Antiques & Autos event Saturday, Sept.8th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., around the historic Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square, 110 W. Hickory Street.
A new feature of the event this year includes an art contest with hand-rendered or digitally produced entries focusing on the courthouse, downtown buildings and iconic Denton sites, automobiles, motorcycles, antiques, or other things that represent the event and Denton. Artists may enter for FREE with a chance to win prizes and see their artwork used for next year's event. Selected entries will be showcased prior to the event and during the event, as well as be entered into the DMSA Silent Auction fundraiser. Please check the Events page on this website for a set of complete rules and entry forms for the art contest under the AAA information.
Register early for the car, truck and motorcycle show and compete for the coveted Best of Show award. Festival-goers can also shop and stroll through fine arts & crafts vendor booths with one-of-a-kind pieces, or peruse the silent auction and bid on great downtown merchant goods and local art items. The antique collector, or those aspiring to start, can learn some fast facts about a special antique or heirloom in the “Attic Treasure” Information Appraisals. Hands-on arts, crafts and games keep the kids busy, while local bands playing live music entertain the crowds all day long.
