July 17: You won’t find the area’s best cars at the dealership this summer. Instead, see which cruiser reigns supreme among classic and vintage vehicles at the Media Downtown Car Show—it’s a contest, after all. Live music on three stages sets the pace throughout the day, and don’t miss the selection of restored antique Beamers from Otto’s BMW. Local restaurants will offer specials, so come hungry. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Rain date: July 24. Call (610) 566-5039 or visit visitmediapa.com.
July 21: It may be the winter of discontent for King Richard, but the Shakespeare in the Park series, presented by the Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company, will have theater buffs reveling in summer. Grab your seats early for Richard III, one of the playwright’s greatest works. 7 p.m. Everhart Park, 100 S. Brandywine St., West Chester. Call (610) 202-7878 or visit commonwealthclassictheatre.org.
July 25-30: Think you have what it takes to be a pie-eating champ? The 2011 Kimberton Fair is looking for you, along with the best log-sawing, cow-milking and tractor-pulling locals to roll up their sleeves for some serious fun. Ladies can strut their stuff in the Fair Queen contest, or simply hop on some rides and enjoy the best chicken barbecue this side of the Chester County line. 6-10 p.m. Monday-Friday; noon-10 p.m. Saturday. 762 Pike Springs Road, Phoenixville. Call (610) 933-4566 or visit kimbertonfair.org.
