The 22nd Annual Oak Bay Classic Car Festival is happening this Sunday


Another weekend, another auto show!

The annual Oak Bay Collector Car Festival is back, celebrating 22 years of showcasing Vancouver Island’s coolest and most sought-after classic cars.

On Sunday, July 24, car enthusiasts can bring their cars to Oak Bay to participate in the festival.

Cars of all brands and vintages are welcome!

Car enthusiasts and their families can stop to view the cars, which will be placed in sections along five blocks of Oak Bay Avenue, from Monterey to Mitchell Street and part of Hampshire Road.

Beginning at 7 a.m., exhibitors can enter the festival near Foul Bay Road from the west end of Oak Bay Avenue where they will be met by volunteers to pay the $20 registration fee.

Volunteers will then escort the cars to their location for display until 3 p.m.

Many restaurants and local businesses in the area will open for the day. There will also be a prime rib BBQ on the municipal hall lawn.

The festival will award prizes for Policeman’s Choice and Firefighter’s Choice, Mayor’s Choice and Ladies’ Choice as well as 11 other categories. Ribbons of colored rosettes will be awarded to the winners of each category.
