UPDATE: Due to the predicted snow storm, the Washington Auto Show has delayed its opening to Monday, January 25.
Love cars and looking for something to do this weekend? An outing to the 2016 Washington Auto Show might be in order! Hosted at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the show runs from January 22-31. The following is an excerpt from their website:
“Designated one of the nation’s top five auto shows by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, The Washington Auto Show®, a world class event, continues to wow audiences with its cutting-edge exhibits, latest model cars and displays of historic vehicles.
As the “Public Policy Show” on the auto show circuit, the 10-day public show is preceded by two Public Policy Preview Days of special events and announcements for officials in government, industry and the media.
The Washington Auto Show is also the largest public show in Washington, D.C. Over the course of its many years this beloved and historic D.C. tradition has attracted Washingtonians of all stripes – and political affiliations. Visitors enjoy the annual trek to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center for the entertainment, as much as for the experience of viewing the hundreds of cars on exhibit.
Along with the engineering prowess on display among the more than 700 new models from over 42 manufacturers, the 2016 show will feature VIP tours led by award-winning automotive writers and a special exhibit area for live painting of “art” cars. As a bonus, there will be onsite visits from sports personalities and mascots, a Family Fun Zone and a beer garden, presented by Samuel Adams.”
