The total floor space of 9.000 m2 will be filled with everything in the field of classics. In the Frisian Congress Center, an exhibition area of ​​9.000 m2 will be filled with a diverse collection of classic cars, motorcycles, mopeds and tractors that are at least 25 years old. Those in charge have worked hard to compile an impressive list of participants. We can inform you in advance that all of this has been successful.

Diverse offer
The exhibitors bring a diverse range to Drachten. Of course there will be concepts from the commercial classic world in Drachten. To name a few: Hofman from Leek and Carrosso from Oldemarkt will once again bring some beautiful classics from their supply to Drachten. The lover of American exotics can go to Cars, Cola and Coins from Sint Jacobiparochie. The Stichting Rijdend Motor Museum (Stichting Rijdend Motor Museum) takes unique WT races and sport motorbikes to the heart of the Frisian Forests. But also in the field of tractors, automobilia, classic clothing, beautiful museums, restoration, insurance, advice, miniatures, moped clubs, classic motorbikes and many other things, the loving visitor can fully indulge. Various clubs - such as the Topolino club and the Alpine Renault Club - also liven up the Drachten festival. Among other things a merry-go-round, a pin striping demonstration and various stalls complete the party. Classic Drachten is a must for the Easter days, that much is clear.
