It is back! After all, a dream goes on forever.
After two consecutive COVID-created cancellations in 2020 and 2021, organizers plan to bring back Half Moon Bay California’s remarkable, one and only Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show in 2022, marking its 30th year with a massive celebration of mechanical ingenuity, power and style.
"It feels like there is a sense of renewal and optimism that live events will be back in 2022," said Janie James, Executive Director of event beneficiary, the Coastside Adult Day Health Center. "Everyone has missed Dream Machines so much and we're all excited and energized to bring it back to life in accordance with health and safety guidelines."
It's quite simply the “Coolest Show on Earth”. This year’s spectacular show will be held on Sunday, April 24, a one-day mega-show, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Half Moon Bay Airport's Eddie Andreini Field, located in the picturesque seaside town of Half Moon Bay, CA about 20 miles south of San Francisco.
The show is a whimsical, fascinating, amusing, curious and absolutely unique show and tell spectacle featuring some 2,000 magnificent driving, flying and working machines from the 20th and 21st centuries.
The world's coolest cars of every era and style, model-T fire engines, vintage busses, custom motorcycles, tricked out trucks, sleek streamliners, one-of-a-kind antique engines and tractors and historic military aircraft will be among the mesmerizing displays.
Additional attractions include action-packed amusements in the Kidz Super Duper Funzone, fabulous food and drink with craft beer, premium wine and custom cocktails, and stellar live music all day.
This year’s show will feature a new, improved event layout bringing all the attractions closer together and making it a more walkable, unified show with separate entrances for spectator parking (access from Capistrano Road at the south end of the airport) vs. display vehicles, vendors, sponsors and volunteers (access from the airport main entrance on Highway 1).
To show a car, truck, motorcycle, aircraft or other machine, the registration fee is $40 ($50 for entries postmarked after April 15) and includes a custom dash plaque and admission for the registrant plus one passenger (must be together in the registered vehicle).

Spectator admission is $25 in advance ($30 at the gate) for adults (age 18-64), $15 in advance ($20 at the gate) for ages 11-17 and 65+, Free for kids age 10 and under (with paying adult). Purchase spectator tickets online at http://www.miramarevents.com/dreammachines
It all takes place at Half Moon Bay Airport, 9850 N. Cabrillo Highway, Half Moon Bay CA 94019 – located on Highway 1, about 20 miles south of San Francisco and 5 miles north of Highway 92.
The show benefits the Coastside Adult Day Health Center. Thanks in part to fund-raising support from Dream Machines, the beautiful Coastside Adult Community Center opened in 2014. Drop by their facility at 925 Main Street in Half Moon Bay.
