28th California Mille & Free Car Show
April 15, 2018 | 11 am to 6 pm
In front of the Fairmont Hotel, Nob Hill, San Francisco

Over 70 vintage cars that could have qualified for Italy’s thousand mile event that ran from 1927-1957, will arrive at San Francisco’s Nob Hill from a dozen states and two foreign countries on Sunday, April 15. The public is invited to see the cars and meet the drivers in front of the Fairmont Hotel.

Ancient Alfa Romeos, pristine Porsches and magnificent Mercedes-Benz will take their places next to Jaguars, Ferraris, Bentleys and other classics on Mason Street, which will be closed to traffic between Sacramento and California Streets.

On Monday morning, April 16th, they will wave the Italian flag  and officially start the four-day, one thousand mile tour (not a race) of northern California time capsule towns and little-known backroads.
