The Cars are The Stars:

A Matinee at The Roxy

SEPTEMBER 16, 2023 • 12 pm - 5 pm • MINERVA, OH

The Minerva Chamber of Commerce would like to invite you to an absolutely amazing Charity event (501c3) in Northeast Ohio called ‘The Cars are The Stars: A Matinee at The Roxy!

We shut down the whole town for a Fine Automobile Exhibition on The Bricks of Historic North Market Street in Minerva Ohio. The small-town charm is the perfect jewelry box for a hand-picked, invitation-only Exhibition of only 65-70 amazing and exceptional automobiles on The Bricks! We also have food trucks and live music! The coolest part is that we start the event with a procession into town so everyone can see, hear, smell, and even FEEL these amazing machines in motion– so get here early! We also have expanded to include Collector Car Corrals with room for about 150 great automobiles as well making this a top event in the State for an Automobile Enthusiast and their family to attend!

Our Food Trucks for 2023 include Cajun Jay’s and 3 Island G’s Mobile Cuisine!

Live Music by Luke Schreffler from 12 pm-2 pm and TFree & The Panic Attacks from 3 pm-5 pm!

The Cars

We’ve partnered with private collectors, professional racing teams, and automotive industry insiders to bring together a wide assortment of rare, unique, and historically significant vehicles. Whether you’re in to vintage American muscle or the latest Italian exotic, you’ll find it here. If you think your car would be a great addition to the lineup, we’d love for you to Apply for Display.

Exhibition on The Bricks

With only 65-70 spots, Exhibition on The Bricks will include only the Best and Finest examples of Automobiles for a phenomenal selection of Classic, Collector and Competition Cars from all ages and genre’s. We will also feature some cars from ‘The List’ in Gone in 60 Seconds including Eleanor– a genuine 1967 Ford Mustang GT500E! Please understand that with such limited space, application for Exhibition on The Bricks does not guarantee a spot on The Bricks. 

Collector Car Corrals

We will have room for up to 150 Collector Cars in Corrals set up on the streets and parking lots near The Bricks! This will include a Viper Race Team setting up their full rig and separate areas for anything you may have! Exotic, Sports, Classic, Domestic, Import, New or Antique, we’ve got a spot for you!

To celebrate the restoration efforts of the Roxy Theatre thus far, we’re excited to present the high-octane classic Gone in 60 Seconds both during and after our event. General Admission tickets can be purchased in advanced as well!

The Cause

The brick streets and small-town charm of downtown Minerva provide a unique backdrop for this annual celebration of automotive culture and heritage, with all proceeds from the event benefitting the historic Roxy Theatre. Built in 1936, the Roxy is now a community events center featuring musical performances, theater groups and other community and business events. All donations are tax-deductabe.

Showcase Your Car

While we appreciate and encourage automotive enthusiasm of all kinds, our small-town streets can only accommodate a limited number of vehicles. To provide the best possible experience for participants and spectators alike, we carefully curate a selection of rare, unique, historically significant, or otherwise exceptional automobiles.
