Garlic City Car Show canceled for 2021 – Gilroy Dispatch

The Garlic City Car Show in downtown Gilroy has been canceled for 2021, organizers announced on March 19.

In a letter, Auto Show President Tom Larkin, Gilroy Chamber of Commerce President / CEO Mark Turner and Chamber Event Planner Victoria Valencia wrote that the uncertainty of major events due to Covid-19 led to the decision.

“Ultimately, the continued health and safety of our community and everyone associated with the Garlic City Car Show is our number one priority,” the organizers wrote.

The next auto show is scheduled for June 18, 2022, and all pending registrations will move to next year’s event.

Organizers said two smaller events for auto show attendees are scheduled for this year, with details to be announced at a later date.

“We know this event does more than celebrate great cars; it benefits our downtown businesses and a number of non-profit organizations, ”the letter said. “This show has grown enormously thanks to all of our participants and guests. Each year, we look forward to bringing more than 10,000 guests to our downtown core, and we look forward to the day when we can do so safely again. “
