As 2017 draws to a close, it is time to start planning family vacations and events for the new year. For those looking to combine their love of classic cars and family friendly events, then look no further than Family Events Street Machine Nationals series.

In June, the General Tire Street Machine Nationals will take over Du Quion State Fairgrounds in Du Quion, Illinois. As this is the 35th anniversary of the event, attendees are encouraged to take part in “Picnic of Power” over the weekend of June 15th-17th. Those who make the trip will be treated to harmonies of high performance engines and classic vehicles of all colors. From hot rods to modified classic trucks, this event has little bit of everything to please the performance fanatics in your family.

For those who have a few too many events in June or would enjoy seeing another spectacular display of hot rods, then mark your calendar for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Street Machine Nationals in St. Paul Minnesota.

The Minnesota State Fairgrounds will host over 2000 breathtaking vehicles on July 20th-22nd. This event is not limited to a massive display of incredible cars and trucks, it will feature an autocross course, dyno, stop box, and senseless tire destruction in the famous burnout contest.

Even if you do not own a hotrod or classic, there is plenty for the entire family to see and do over the three days of fun. With live music, giveaways, shopping and a Pin-Up contest, there will be plenty to see and do.

For more information on either event, take a few minutes to check out StreetMachineNationals.net
