Enjoy Family Fun at the Philly Auto Show

This year's show runs from January 28 to February 5.

The Philadelphia Auto Show is taking window shopping to the next level this year, starting January 28. Go rugged in Camp Jeep, take a walk on the wild side down Exotic Alley, or drop into history at the Vintage Auto Museum of New Jersey’s area — the floor plan is wide open with all types of cars, from the high-end glamour vehicles down to economical family cars.


No matter what you’re shopping for (or if you’re just there to browse), you’re going to want to wear comfortable shoes because there’s a lot to see. Bring your little gearheads for a full day of fun. 

This year’s highlights include:

A convention center full of over 700 vehicles on display from more than 40 manufacturers.


Test drives with Kia, BMW, Toyota, Mazda, and Nissan cars in the Ride and Drive Zone.


Performances and appearances by Audra McLaughlin, Eddie Alvarez, Bob Kelly, Brian Dawkins, Mo’Ne Davis, and the Sixers Dancers.


Scouts Day on January 29 (preregister here), when Boy and Girl Scouts can see two automotive career presentations and then attend the auto show for free. 


Famous cars in the Hollywood Rides area featuring iconic cars from Back to the Future, Batman, Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, and more!


A kids’ area where your children can try off-road driving without ever leaving the comfort of indoors.


Live radio broadcasts from 102.9 MGK, the 97.5 Fanatic, KYW News Radio 1060, Today’s 96.5, 100.3 wRnB, Boom 103.9, 92.5 XTU, and Power 99 FM.


Online tickets for the Philly Auto Show cost $14 for adults (13+) and $7 for children (7 — 12) and for seniors (62+ on weekdays). Active duty military personnel get a $3 discount, and children under 6 get in free with a ticketed adult. Group discounts are available: tickets are $11 per person when you buy 25 or more tickets at once. The show will donate $2 from each ticket to Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation.
