If you do have to leave, please notify a Town of Oyster Bay Public Safety Officer or Car Show Staff to coordinate your safe exit.
Please arrive as early as possible to avoid being shut out as our Fall 2019 event was at capacity. Once the event reaches capacity, you will not be able to enter the facility.

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 outside of the beach season, so no seasonal parking sticker or daily permit will be required for those entering TOBAY Beach.

What surface will my car be parked on?

All show cars will be parked on a paved surface in a dedicated lot separate from general parking.

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