2019 Run to the Pines Car Show

The Run to the Pines Car Show is a 36-Year Tradition held in Arizona’s beautiful White Mountain region. This collection of 575 pre-1973 cars is the largest of its kind and a not-to-be-missed event. Hosted by Ted and Randi Corbin, Jim and Darla Faulk, and the Run to the Pines volunteers, the 36th Annual 2019 Run to the Pines Car Show will be held Friday, September 27th – Sunday, September 29th, 2019, in cool Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona.

While only pre-1973 vehicles qualify for entry in the 2019 Run to the Pines Car Show, the car show committee encourages everyone with any year of special-interest vehicle to participate in the Cavalcade of Cars Road Tour to be held on Friday, September 27th, 2019.

Application packets for qualifying cars will be mailed May 1, 2019—so watch your mailbox!
