The event will be held to raise funds for the New England Auto Racing Hall of Fame, which is overseen by New England Antique Racers.

The picnic will take place under the pavilion at the Polish American Club at 194 West Spring Street in West Haven. The picnic will take place rain or shine. Tickets for the event are $20 for adults and $10 for children between 12-16. The ticket price includes food and entries for door prize giveaways. There will also be a cash bar and raffles.
