Houston Auto Show rolls out next month – Houston Chronicle


The pandemic may have delayed this year’s Houston Auto Show, but it will go on, the Houston Automobile Dealers Association announced Thursday.

The event, usually held in January, will run May 19-23 at NRG Center in what the association is calling its first-ever Summer Auto Show, featuring autos and an RV and boat display.

Last held in January 2020, the auto show is organized each year by the Houston Automobile Dealers Association and sponsored by the Houston Chronicle. It highlights carmakers and offers an opportunity to test drive new models.

Tickets are $10 and go on sale Monday, according to the announcement. Social distancing will be encouraged, masks are required and guests will be asked health screening questions prior to entering the building.

Exhibits like “Camp Jeep” and the “Ram Test Track” will make return visits, as well as a new Ford Raptor simulator. The show will also feature classic summer vehicles such as the 1934 Ford Woody Wagon and a 1955 Porsche 356 Continental.

Houston-based Texas Sportfishing Yacht Sales will show top-line bay boats and offshore fishing boats ranging boats from $100,000 to one million dollars.

“This first-ever summer auto show has been exciting to produce,” Roger Elswick, chairman of the Houston Automobile Dealers Association and president of Community Auto Group in Baytown, said in the release. “With the help of manufacturers, local dealer groups and individual dealerships, we’ve selected a wide variety of vehicles for guests to experience.”
