Annual Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb
Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb is an annual festival that takes place on the first Sunday of October in Newport, Indiana. The festival is run by the Lions Club of Newport, and the town of Newport. The Newport Auto Antique Hill Climb is an international antique auto up hill timed event held each year in the small Indiana town of Newport, an event that attracts those crowds of one hundred thousand plus to that little town. Automobiles, trucks and motorcycles from the Steam, Brass, Vintage, Antique, and Classic Car eras, make timed runs from a standing start, up a steep hill to a finish line 1,800 feet away.
