If you have access to water at the show, Optimum No Rinse is phenomenal and much faster than a full wet wash. 1 ounce of ONR in about 3 gallons of water and a couple/few WW MF drying towels.

I can do my entire car and wheels in 20-30 minutes.

Might also consider a waterless wash product as well. Several companies make a version.

Note "waterless" is different than "rinseless" which is the product that pander5 mentioned.

Personally I trust "rinsleless" more for removing dirt mar free but to do a proper wash at a car show would be kinda dumb IMO. Waterless is a product where you just spray it on to panels and wipe off the little bit of dust that got on it on your drive over. Meguairs has a product that can be purchased at like your pepboys or autozone that you could try out. I think it is called "ultimate wash and wax anywhere".

The "Gary Dean" method works as well. One gallon of distilled water, 8-9 MF towels, bucket, and a hand pump pressure sprayer from Home Depot.
