Held by the Greater Lehigh Valley Auto Dealers Association in partnership with Lehigh, the annual show will feature new cars, trucks, sport utility vehicles, vans and motorcycles. It is scheduled this year for March 21-24.

“We’re very excited for this year, because we’re going to feature more square footage of products than ever before,” Tom Kwiatek, executive director of GLVADA , said during a press conference Tuesday at Lehigh announcing the auto show. This year’s auto show will have 150,000 square feet of space, up from 140,000 last year.

Kwiatek presented some the show’s highlights, including the event’s largest-ever show floor, across four venues at Lehigh’s Goodman Campus . The show will also include ride and drive programs on site and will include an expanded auto show marketplace.

This year’s preview gala, “Main Streets of the Lehigh Valley,” will be held Wednesday, March 20 from 6-10 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to preview the auto show while enjoying food, music and cocktails. The event is open to the public with free valet parking.

All proceeds benefit St. Luke’s University Health Network. Tickets are $100 per person and $160 per couple. Tickets can be purchased through the Greater Lehigh Valley Auto Dealers Association’s website.

The auto show will be open from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (March 21-23) and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday (March 24).

Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for senior citizens (55 and older) and children (6-14). The fee is $25 for a family four-pack. Admission for children 5 and younger is free, as is parking.

The beneficiary of this year’s auto show is St. Luke’s University Health Network. The hospital announced an expansion of inpatient pediatric capabilities at St. Luke’s University Hospital – Bethlehem to include a new pediatric intensive care unit in conjunction with a renovation of the inpatient pediatric unit by early 2020.
