18th Annual "Drivin' The Dixie" Classic Car Rally!

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Discover the Historic Dixie Highway! On Saturday, June 15, 2019, the 18th Annual “Drivin' The Dixie” Classic Car Rally will take place from Momence, IL to Blue Island, IL with special stops in-between the Dixie Highway communities. Participants are expected to arrive in Chicago Heights starting at approximately 10:00 AM. This year’s local "Passport Stamping Station” will be at Zarlengo’s Italian Ice and Gelato, just west of Dixie Highway. Take a trip back in time to the dawn of the age of the automobile, before our country’s massive interstate highway system existed as we know it today. The Dixie Highway – stretching from the Great Lakes to Miami – was one of the country’s first efforts to improve automobile travel on a large scale. As it did in its heyday, the route links communities that are proud of their shared heritage, and we celebrate the history of this stretch of road with our annual rally – Drivin’ the Dixie!
