If you live in the area of Elmhurst, IL and either own or really like cool cars, this is your summer.  

Every Wednesday through August 22, (except for the July 4 holiday), cars of all makes and models manufactured from the 1920’s through 1997 will be on display in Elmhurst. You’ll find them in three Addison Avenue parking lots, along the east side of Addison Avenue, on York Road and on First Street.

If you own a cool car that you’d like to show off, just bring it to the showing area and park where you see the “Cool Car” signs. Those just looking can park at Schiller and Palmer Drive, at First and Larch, or at Adelaide Street and Adelaide Place.

The schedule is as follows:

For Elmhurst residents who are more partial to food than cars, the annual Farmer’s Market will be in the parking lot on Vallette Street every Wednesday from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. through October 31. (It will be closed during inclement weather.)

There are different vendors every week, but generally the 20 or so merchants will be selling everything from traditional fruits and vegetables to dog grooming services, art, tie-dye, olive oil, raw milk cheeses, and pickles.
