Hershey, PA — For the first time in its 65-year history, the Antique Automobile Club of America has canceled the Hershey Fall Meet, Flea Market and Car Corral scheduled for Oct. 7-10, 2020. The club is exploring the possibility of still hosting its Oct. 10 car show, and will soon share information about payment refunds.
The AACA Hershey Region Executive Board made the announcement, which said:
“It is with great regret that the AACA Hershey Region Executive Board informs you that the 2020 Hershey Fall Meet has been cancelled. This decision was not arrived at lightly. Our Club prides itself on producing a world-class event that thousands of people anticipate every year, so we felt the heaviest of burdens when faced with this decision.
While making the difficult choice to cancel, the Board took many obstacles into account, including but not limited to: the health and welfare of our volunteers, vendors, partners, and visitors; the unknown restrictions and/or guidelines that may be in place at the time of our show; and the volunteer-only workforce we rely on to prepare for a show of our magnitude.
We appreciate you understanding how difficult this decision was for the Executive Board to make. We know that some people will be upset by the decision and others will applaud it. Either way, please know that the Hershey Region Executive Board has acted in what they believe are the best interests of the Club, and we ask for your continued support as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
