49th Annual Daytona Turkey Run | November 24-27, 2022


Car enthusiasts, get ready to gear up for one of Daytona Beach’s favorite holiday weekends! The Daytona Turkey Run is the largest combined collector car show, swap meet and car corral (private buying and selling) in the United States, and it’s right around the corner.


Thursday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. — $20
Sunday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. — $15
Kids under 11 admitted for FREE.



General admission tickets are available online 2 months before the event or at the speedway during show days.

For the last 49 years, people have flocked from across the nation and beyond to celebrate classic cars in racing's most celebrated location, Daytona International Speedway. In addition to a range of cars manufactured prior to 1980, the show also features Mustangs, Corvettes, Camaros, Chargers, Challengers, Prowlers, Vipers and foreign exotic cars of all ages. No scoring, no awards, just solid family fun!


Started in 1974 by Stu Sarjeant, the show offers thousands of vintage, classic and muscle cars, as well as trucks and other wheeled vehicles, displayed for show and sale, plus a variety of food and live entertainment. In its first year, 45 classic “street rods” were on display. By 1989, the show had grown to feature more than 1,500 show-quality cars and found a permanent home in the infield of Daytona International Speedway. Today, the Turkey Run boasts over 6,000 cars for show and sale, and it has donated more than $7 million of profits to charitable organizations.



From car enthusiasts to art lovers, the whole family will find something to see or explore at the show. Over 1,200 special collector cars are on display and ready for sale or trade in the Turkey Run Car Corral and all the collector parts, pieces and memorabilia you could ever want are here. At the event’s swap meet, you’ll no doubt find what you’re looking for. Don’t miss the Artisan Alley — a crafts bazaar full of unique gifts, arts and fashion.
