Model-T fire engines, vintage busses, custom motorcycles, tricked out trucks, sleen the picturesque seaside town of Half Moon Bay about 20 miles south of San Francisco. The show benefits the Coastside Adult Day Health Center.

Hundreds of aviation wonders are expected to be on display –– stylish homebuilts, classics from the 40's and 50's, exceptional vintage warbirds, and sport and ultralight aircraft. 

The most curious and fascinating displays are the large and small engines collected and refurbished by members of the Early Days Gas Engine & Tractor Association. Their amazing array of flywheel engines are enough to power antique washing machines, lawn mowers, and an entire a Lilliputian factory. On the larger side are several pieces from Roots of Motive Power's collection of restored logging equipment like spool donkeys and Buffalo Springfield steamrollers.

Rounding out the activities will be Unicycle Drag Racing, kids' amusements, food and live music. Musical Entertainment, shiny vehicles, and fun for the kids and big kids--what more could you dream for?

Debuting this year are spectacular skydiving performances from the C-47 with military style jumps by the experts at Precision Skydiving and a special appearance by Shane Skull Krusher, the world's youngest mini monster truck driver. For electrifying showstoppers, the show's extreme attractions return – freestyle motocross shows, unimotorcycle drags and monster truck rides.

We're proud to say 2016 will mark our 26th annual Dream Machines Show,” said event Chairman Chad Hooker. "This year's show promises to be as spectacular and fascinating as ever and we look forward to welcoming visitors to our beautiful Half Moon Bay area for what has grown into one of Northern California's most unique and beloved events."

The "DRIVE Magazine Dream Machine of the Year” returns with editors from Beckett Media's DRIVE Magazine on hand to select a winner from the thousands of magnificent machines on display. A special trophy will be awarded at a recognition ceremony during the show.

The attractions for youngsters are amazing and endless in the Super Duper Kidz Funzone: a ultra-thrilling zip line, Zorbs – the Human Hamster Ball race track, bungee jump, rock climbing wall, wild and wacky waterballerz, Rocky the Mechanical Bull ride, giant inflatable rock slide and obstacle course, face painting, and a remote-controlled NASCAR race track.

In 2016 a stellar lineup of all-day live music with headliners East Bay Mudd, the Chris Cain Band and the Andy Santana Band with surprise guests, plenty of fabulous food and delicious coastal-infused drink with a custom beer just for the show – Classic Motorhead Ale from Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, craft cocktails from Half Moon Bay Distillery and tasty varietals from Half Moon Bay's Barterra Winery.
