Ready to plan

your weekend at the

Iola car show?

Take a look at some helpful hints to make sure you see EVERYTHING Iola has to offer!

Parking & Busses

We offer free spectator parking! Follow the street signs to get to the Iola Car Show Spectator lots. These will locate you near Gate #1, our main spectator entrance. Please note a number of paid private lots surround the show grounds.

The bus shuttle runs from the campgrounds to Gate #16 in the car corral area. It also operates in spectator parking, continually dropping off at Gate #1 and near Gate #8.

*Due to traffic congestion, there is no shuttle for the perimeter of the

show grounds. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Special Guests

Enter at Gates 3 and 4. Special guests will be located on the main drag. We will post schedules as the show gets closer!

Blue ribbon

Enter at Gates 4, 5 and 3. Blue Ribbon cars are along Hwy. 161 and it's a great place to start the show off at!

Show Cars

Enter at Gates 3 and 2. Your post-war cars, the Old Cars Young Drivers, and the new Late Model vehicle category are located along Hwy J!

Swap Meet

Enter at Gates 1, 15, 2, 6, 7, 8 and 10. As you can see, you can't really go wrong when viewing the swap meet no matter what gate you enter! Located on the East side of the grounds, Gate 1 is the most popular swap meet entrance due to the proximity to spectator parking.

Car Corral

Enter at Gate 16. A show of it's own, check out all the cars for sale in this lot. This area is fun to walk thru for the shear variation in cars for sale.
