While the cars are the stars of the Jacksonville International Auto Show, there’s a full range of activities to make it a fun outing for the whole family. The Jacksonville International Auto Show is a place where auto enthusiasts, potential buyers, and people who are looking for a fun day out can come together. Whether you’ve come to shop for a vehicle, to share your passion for cars with others, or just to have some fun with your family and friends, the Jacksonville International Auto Show is more than a showroom of new model year vehicles — it’s an event!
2022 EVENTS & ATTRACTIONS
Take a Spin with Chevrolet, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Ram and more!
Don’t just kick the tires and slam the doors, get behind the wheel and drive it yourself. Chevrolet comes to town with several cars you can experience on the road. First and foremost in the Chevy Ride & Drive, see what it’s like to drive an EV in a 2022 Chevrolet Bolt! You can also shake-out a Chevy Blazer, Equinox, Colorado, Silverado, or Camaro!
The Stellantis group is bringing a wide variety of their great brands and models. Performance models like the Dodge Challenger, Charger and Durango SRT. Jeeps including the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. Heavy duty Ram 1500 and 2500’s, even Chrysler Pacificas and the Fiat 500X will all be on hand for you to take for a drive.
We all need a little help sometimes with challenging parking spaces. Thankfully, with the BMW Parking Assistant, perfect parallel parking can happen. The latest BMWs are equipped with the up-to-date BMW Parking Assistant. At a push of a button, the
system takes over and parks the car into any spot. See it in action for yourself at the show.

Saturday, 2/19 4-6pm

Like a White Tiger or a Blue Whale, you’re not likely to see one of these in the wild. Italian stallions and British thoroughbreds that seem otherworldly in style and
performance. At this year’s show, legendary marques from Lamborghini, the “original supercar,” to the Audi R8 and even a Viper, inspire passion and set hearts racing, even standing still.
Just as elusive, these motoring icons are the ultimate expressions of personal luxury and style. Forged by the most desirable marques in the world, get a rare and close-up look at the latest models from Rolls Royce, Bentley and Maserati.
To the Bat Cave!
The Caped Crusader is coming to Jacksonville! This Batmobile was manufactured by the same company that built the original driven by Michael Keaton in 1989. Street legal and ready for action with a powered canopy, guns that fire and even a flamethrower! It’s the latest edition to the spectacular collection at the Classic Car Museum of St. Augustine.
Flexing our Muscles
America’s muscle car heritage takes center stage thanks to the Classic Car Museum of St. Augustine. Their remarkable collection includes some of the most highly-prized examples in the nation. Cobra, Daytona Charger, GTO, even a bandit T/A, check out the cars that set Detroit iron apart from the rest of the motoring world.
We Build Excitement
It’s been nearly 13 years since the last Pontiac rolled off the assembly line… yet the GM performance brand remains remarkably popular among gearheads. Models like the Trans Am, Bonneville, Fiero, GTO, and Tempest continue to skyrocket in value. This year, for the first time the Jacksonville Auto Show is thrilled to welcome the Dixie Chapter of the Pontiac Club. Incredible classics you’ve probably only read about, on display at the show.
Subaru Loves Pets, and we do too! That’s why we’re partnering with Subaru and the Safe Animal Shelter to support pet adoption initiatives in the Jacksonville area. Whether you’re looking to take home a dog or puppy, or just want to have a little “play time,” Subaru is dedicated to improving the safety and well-being of the First Coast’s homeless and at-risk animals.
The Jacksonville International Auto Show is proud to celebrate the enthusiasts who drive our local car culture. From highlighting the past to exotic upgrades for your current ride, Gearhead City gives you the unique opportunity to see these amazing vehicles up close, while getting the inside scoop from their owners.
Check out vintage and iconic models of “America’s Sports Car” with the Jacksonville Corvette Club on Saturday, February 19th. From the original 50’s roadster to the state-of-the-art mid-engine C8, we’ve got all Vette’s covered.
The original pony car is also coming to Gearhead City. The Jacksonville Mustang Club will have them all: Shelbys, Bullitts, Mach 1’s and all the GT’s will be pumping the horses on Sunday, February 20th.
