“Romancing the Chrome” is the largest car show of its kind in northeastern Maryland, featuring close to 300 classic automobiles.
With free admission, it’s also very popular with the public. Almost 3,000 people attended last year’s show, according to Harford County Public Library Foundation Director Kristi Halford.
The Sixth Annual Romancing the Chrome will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 22, at Jarrett’s Field in Jarrettsville.
The event promises fun for all ages. It will feature a children’s area with face painting and story times with Tales and Tales Jr., the Rolling Reader book van, a DJ, vendors, food concessions and a beer garden. Halford said the Aberdeen IronBirds mascots will also be making an appearance.
Those interested in entering their cars in the competition should visit romancingthechrome.org for class information. Pre-registration costs $15 and ends April 17. Registration the day of the show costs $20 and takes place from 8 to 10 a.m. April 22.
Proceeds from car entries, vendor fees and sponsorships benefit the Harford County Public Library Foundation and the Jarrettsville Lions Club.
Jarrett’s Field is located at 3719 Norrisville Road in Jarrettsville. In case of rain, Romancing the Chrome will be held Saturday, April 29.
