Will one of British Columbia’s most popular car show return in 2023? All signs indicate yes! The West Coasters Car Show has been steadily growing, and the city of White Rock has said that they’re happy to include it as part of their annual Sea Festival.

White Rock, BC, Offers an Open Door to the West Coasters Daze Car Show

In 2020 and 2021, the annual West Coasters Car Show held in Semiahmoo Park across the bay was cancelled due to the pandemic. In 2022, the Semiahmoo Nation wasn’t sure they’d be having their Semiahmoo Days, which traditionally included the classic car event. In May 2022, the city council of White Rock declared that if the car show wouldn’t happen in Washington State, they’d be happy to bring it across the border to uptown. Thus, the future of one of the most popular classic car events in Canada was secured.

Plans are in Motion to Combine Semiahmoo Days and White Rock Sea Festival for 2023

The city of White Rock and the Semiahmoo Park in Whatcom County, WA, are coordinating to combine their annual festivals for a midsummer celebration. Visitors to the area can explore the traditions of the Semiahmoo Nation, see the classic cars, and then drive across to White Rock and watch a regatta on the harbour.

A Classic Car Show that Spans the Border

The best part of the West Coasters Car Show is that it embraces entries from both sides of the U.S. and Canada border. The weekend festival celebrates how the ocean connects the two spurs of land and its communities. Cars travel from Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, and Calgary.

You can expect moonshine runners from the 1930s, convertible 50s Cadillac, a Camaro from the 70s, and low-riders that drove up the coast for the day. There’s something for every auto enthusiast.

A Popular Car Show with Events for the Entire Family

Traditionally, the classic car event runs on the morning of the festival’s first day. Opening ceremonies are held in the park, the hoods are raised, and visitors are invited to stroll down the aisles. Face painting, food trucks, trophies, entertainers, and indigenous artisans ensure that everyone has a beautiful time.
