Details
  • Time: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
  • Price: Free
  • Description:

    The Prancing Ponies Car Show welcomes women owners/co-owners of Classic cars, Muscle cars, Super cars, and Hyper Cars.  Free to the Public.


    There will be live music, amazing swag bags, VIP access and other goodies provided to registrants. We also encourage women to dress to match their car’s color or their car’s time period.  There will be awards for the best owner/car presentation in each category as well as one best in show awarded by judges.

    The idea for the Prancing Ponies Foundation, Rally, and Car Show stems from an experience in San Francisco where I was at a stop sign next to a bus stop watching 3 teenage girls ‘be teenage girls’ and reminiscing about my own experience as a teenager.  The girls suddenly grew silent and I noticed they were looking at me.  One of the girls said ‘Miss, I like your car’ and without knowing where this came from I said ‘I expect you to get one too’.  Our eyes locked and I’ll never forget her little face as she slowly nodded in agreement.  I knew in that moment there was a real connection made with her and that I could use my Ferrari to inspire young girls.  The Car Show provides an opportunity for young girls to be inspired to pursue careers in the automotive/motorsports industry and be empowered by seeing other women car enthusiasts like yourself.

    All proceeds are donated to the Prancing Ponies Foundation to help ‘Create Women Leaders One Girl at a Time’. We do this by sending high school graduating girls to our Leadership-Abroad Academy each summer.  This year have sent 4 girls to Paris.  You can find out more information about our Future Women Leaders here: https://prancingponies.com/the-foundation/leadership-abroad-class-2017/.
