2016 First Friday Car Show

The 2016 Downtown Oxford Car Show was a huge success! With over 250 show cars, 50+ street vendors, and 4,800 attendees, a great time was had by all!

Getting Around

Parking is on your own, as it is for other Downtown events. We suggest car pooling to reduce the amount of visitor vehicles. Luckily Oxford is very walkable. The short stroll to the event will be well worth it for all of the fun you will have!
