The organizers of the show, Blais said, created the successful Wolfsgart Auto Show held at the Champlain Valley Expo Center in Essex Junction, Vt.

Blais added that he expects Wagenfest to grow in upcoming years and move to the county festival space in the West Brook environmental park. Almost 200 cars and owners' families attended the Vermont event.
