Gonzalez United Methodist is proud to present our annual GUMC Youth/Branden Penegar Memorial Car Show, a tribute to a wonderful young man who left us much too soon. Branden Penegar was a very active member of the GUMC Youth group who was called home to Heaven on March 9, 2013, a couple months shy of his 21st birthday. He became a friend to everyone he met and his constant smile was contagious. Branden could make any day seem better just by being in the same room with him. He loved God, his family, friends, Tate High School football, Florida State Seminoles, NASCAR and the GUMC Youth group. Although Branden had “graduated out” of youth in 2011, he stayed active in the by serving as a mentor, friend and chaperone at youth activities. The Youth want to show their continued love for Branden by including his name on this car show which has now grown to be one of the larger car shows in the Pensacola area. He will forever live in our hearts.
We welcome any make, model, or year car. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase, and all proceeds from our annual car show benefit the GUMC Youth Group.


The 2018 show will take place on Saturday, March 17th. Registration for cars will be from 8am to 11am on the day of the show. Presentation of awards begins at 1pm. In case of rain, the backup date is Saturday, March 31st.   Check our Facebook page for up to the minute updates.


The show will be held on the grounds of the GUMC campus which is located at 2026 Pauline St., Cantonment, Florida 32533.

We are located north of Pensacola in Cantonment, just off Highway 29, between Old Chemstrand and Kingsfield.
