Maryhill Museum and the Goldendale Motorsports Association will present the 6th Annual Concours de Maryhill car show on the lawns of the museum, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Visitors will have an array of mint condition vintage, classic and custom cars to admire. Refreshment vendors will be on site.
Admission to the car show and the outdoor sculpture garden are free.
"The legendary Sam Hill, founder of Maryhill Museum, was a car and road enthusiast," said Colleen Schafroth, executive director. "He would love this event."
At noon, 40 vintage race cares will parade down SR 14 into the car show. These 1930 through 1960s cars will be competing in a hill climb race on the museum's Historic Loops Road on Oct. 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"This is an open car show, so anyone with a special car may enter," said Travis Gray of Goldendale Motorsports Association. "Collectors interested in showing a car are encouraged to contact us at 773-3677. The lawns at the museum are extensive so there's space available for lots of cars."
Awards will be presented at 3:30 p.m. followed by a barbecue dinner on the museum's picnic grounds, then wine tasting at the Maryhill Winery located just west of the museum.
On Sunday, spectators can view the hill climb race from an overlook on US 97, just three miles north of SR 14. The race is organized by the Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts and only their approved cars and drivers can compete.
