2018 Halifax County Heritage & Antique Machinery Festival



Two exciting features of the Annual Halifax County Heritage & Antique Machinery Festival will return on Saturday, May 5.

Promising to rekindle fond memories of Halifax County’s stock car racing heritage, the Heritage Festival will again feature actual race cars from the early years of local stock car racing. Visitors will be able to see up close and in person some of the actual stock cars that made short track racing history here in Halifax County and the surrounding area, including the famed South Boston Speedway. The race car owners and drivers will be on hand to show off their race cars and share their stories of racing “back in the day”.

As a bonus for festival goers and stock car owners and drivers, owners will be offered the opportunity to parade over to South Boston Speedway located adjacent to the Fairgrounds to run “hot laps” on Saturday between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. Festival goers can enter the speedway viewing area free of charge.

Another popular display at the Halifax County Heritage & Antique Machinery Festival is the Classic Car Cruz-In sponsored by the Tinkers Car Club of South Boston. The cruz-in attracts over 200 entrants from around the region each year.

Beautifully restored cars and trucks dating back to the early 1920’s create an impressive line-up for festival goers to see and reminisce about the cars and trucks of yesteryear.

Tinker Car Club members are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of classic and antique cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Members enjoy the automotive hobby and devote any money raised at their events during the year exclusively to helping needy individuals and families in the local area.

These and many other displays, exhibits, and attractions are part of the 15th. Annual Heritage & Antique Machinery Festival that will be held on May 4th and 5th. at the Halifax County Fairgrounds.
