Wheels & Waffles Becomes an Annual Car Event at ESE
Rev up those engines and cruise down to Eastern States Exposition for Wheels & Waffles, a tasty spin on your traditional cars and coffee, Saturday, May 20 from 8 - 10am. All collector, classic and custom vehicles are welcome. Show cars will enter the grounds at Gate 2 and park along the Avenue of States.
Coffee, breakfast refreshments and homemade waffles, served by Storrowton Tavern Head Chef and restaurant owner, Vin Calvanese, are complimentary to all who arrive in a show vehicle. Cars of any year, make and model are welcome. Bruce Marshall, of Real Oldies 1250, will be spinning 50s and 60s tunes for the duration of the event.
Wheels & Waffles is an extension of the Exposition’s Collector Car Experience, taking place Sunday, Sept. 24 at The Big E’s xfinity arena.
“We are pleased to offer an extensive car program to our Big E and year-round audience,” said John Juliano, senior director of Sales, Marketing & Entertainment. “The success of the first two Collector Car Experience shows motivated us to expand the brand outside of its exclusive Fairtime event status.
“Wheels & Waffles is our effort to engage car enthusiasts in the community and gather leads on vehicles to feature at The Big E. If you have a hot set of wheels or a classic ride that’s been cooped up in the garage all winter, it’s time to fire it up,” said Juliano.
This year’s Collector Car Experience welcomes back hosts of Velocity channel fame, Mike Brewer, of Wheeler Dealers, and Wayne Carini, of Chasing Classic Cars. The event features a first class lineup of cars from the Brass Era to present, plus commentary by car owners and hosts.
Wheels & Waffles events are weather permitting. Waffles and refreshments served at the event are not offered for sale to event spectators.
Eastern States Exposition will present a second Wheels & Waffles event on Saturday, Aug. 19. Updates and more information regarding Wheels & Waffles and the Collector Car Experience can be found at here
