CANCELLED September 27: Paola Heartland Car Show

The Paola Heartland Car Show Committee along with the Paola Chamber of Commerce has been able to keep the tradition of the Heartland Car Show started 18 years ago alive and well. We take great pride in bringing a fun event for families to enjoy.

However, in the best of interest of our community and everyone involved in the Car Show, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event due to the pandemic. We look forward to carrying on the tradition in 2021 and seeing you there! Stay safe and come see us next year.
