Scottsdale is home to some of the Valleys greatest events and January is the month that kicks it all off. For those of us at The Dirty Dogg Saloon we cant wait to get it kicking with the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction starting January 11th.
The Barrett-Jackson car auction is celebrating its 49th season in 2020 and it’s still going strong.
The nine-day event at WestWorld of Scottsdale has established itself as one of the premier car auctions in the country. More than 1,800 vehicles will be up for sale during this year’s event.
Collectors on site and remote bid on an incredible array of cars, trucks and other vehicles that are wheeled onstage.
You’ll see exotic vehicles and beautifully restored American classics. There will be family cruisers for sale along with souped-up hot rods and all sorts of other vehicles.
But you don’t need to be a collector or car enthusiast to enjoy the show. There are plenty of activities to keep the whole family busy.
Here’s what you need to know if you’re going to the Barrett-Jackson auto auction from Jan. 11 to 19.
