I’m showing my car… what time can I arrive?

If you do have to leave, we ask that you coordinate with a Town of Oyster Bay Public Safety Officer or Car Show Staff to coordinate your safe exit.

Is there a beach sticker or residency requirement for this event?

No. All are welcome to attend the Car Show Long Island Tobay Classic. This event is taking place after the beach season ends, so no seasonal parking sticker or daily permit will be required for those entering Tobay Beach.

What surface will my car be parked on?

Show cars will be parked on a paved surface in a separate parking lot from the spectator lot.

What address can I enter in my GPS for Tobay Beach?

While GPS devices or Navigation apps, like ‘Waze’, differ, simply typing “Tobay Beach” into your search should direct you correctly.
