Sept. 20 at the Hagley Museum & Library
My love of cars started with my grandpa, who owned a dealership. At this annual event, I always feel like I’m in my element among the more than 500 antique and restored vehicles that date from the early 1900s to the 1980s. The day also features car parades, motoring music, video and go-kart racing, and a food court. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Visit www.hagley.org.

Sept. 18 at the Theatre of the Living Arts
No artist in recent memory has done more to revitalize country music’s cantankerous roots than this Kentucky-bred son of a state trooper. As you might expect from a policeman’s kid, Simpson doesn’t take any guff from anyone, including Nashville. His gritty, hard-driving Metamodern Sounds of County Music was one the best album’s of 2014, touted by critics and fans alike as heartfelt and authentic in the extreme. See him live, and you’ll get the gist. Visit www.livenation.com.

Sept. 13 in Wayne
Give some love to the area’s volunteer firefighters and EMTs by participating in the Main Line Run, a 5K race that benefits the Main Line Emergency Responders Scholarship Program. The more than $45,000 raised last year helped men and women attend four-year and two-year colleges and specialized job-training programs. The event includes a 1.5K walk and a business-and-fitness expo. The starting point is the Main Line Chamber of Commerce in Wayne. Visit www.mainlinerun.org.
