If you just can’t get enough of classic cars, have we got some good news for you! Vintage car shows in Canada are back on the calendar in 2021.
Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, many vintage car shows were cancelled last year. But due to vaccinations, many classic shows are taking place this summer and fall across the country.
Here are some of the most anticipated classic car shows in Canada this year.
Port Dover Lions Show and Shine Nights
Head to Port Dover, Ontario on Mondays for the Port Dover Lions Show and Shine Nights. This fun, weekly event runs every Monday from August 2 through September 13.
Here, you’ll find classic (and future classic) cars on display, along with food trucks, music and entertainment. This family-friendly event also features a 50/50 draw and door prizes. Meet classic and antique car owners and talk to them about all steps of the restoration process. Admission and parking are free.
