Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Festival Homecoming
The Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Festival is a Homecoming for all the vintage motorcars produced here at the Auburn plant as they find their way back home to Indiana. This year it will run from August 24 through August 31, 2019. The annual Labor Day Homecoming is such an amazing display of Americana that we count it as one of the major car shows to add to your bucket list.
Early on Saturday morning, Eckhart Park in downtown Auburn was filled with American dream cars. This was the most impressive display of Duesenbergs ever seen in modern times. Here are the Duesenbergs, 21 in all, in all their splendor.
Every evening in downtown Auburn, the streets near the heart of the city are packed with classic cars from yesteryear. One of the billboards on the way to Auburn says, “It’s not just a car … it’s a Time Machine.” This show is like stepping back into the 1930’s. You won’t believe how many Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs have been preserved in running condition. It seems they all come out for this show, however.
Cars On Line.com will be here all weekend to capture the event “live” for you in photos and video. We’ll be covering the Saturday morning Concours in Eckhart Park, and the Parade of Classics as hundreds of these Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs take to the streets in an incredible parade through downtown Auburn. You’ll also want to follow our coverage of the big Fall Auburn Auction by RM Auctions in its 49th year. It will be held in the Auburn Auction Park. The Auction Park also holds a car corral and swap meet with other interesting displays on the enourmous park grounds.

Parade of Classics
After the concours in Eckhart Park, all of the Auburns, Cords and Duesenberg line up for a spectacular Parade of Classics down Jackson Street and to the Courthouse. It is a beautiful display of rolling artwork.
The Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Festival celebrates the annual homecoming of vintage motorcars and their return to their birthplace in Auburn, Indiana. Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs will be on display this weekend as the whole city of Auburn welcomes collector car owners and their legendary motorcars.
