The Washington Auto Show takes place in late January at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. It features over 600 amazing vehicles from dozens of producers on three floors including concept cars, the latest models of famous manufacturers, and innovative vehicles. The fair includes indoor interactive driving experiences, outdoor test drives, kids play area, and art exhibits.
One of the largest auto shows in North America, the Washington Auto Show focuses on innovations and sustainable automotive technologies. The Green Car Vision Award is one of the highlights of the show. The ten-day public show is preceded by two days of Public Policy Preview that include special events for government officials, industry professionals, and journalists.
The show dates back to 1921 when a group of 20 Washington-area car dealers and distributors decided to organize a show to demonstrate the advantages of a horseless carriage. Today, the show attracts many celebrities and includes lots of contests and entertainment.
