Collector Car Festival
The annual Oak Bay Collector Car Festival returns for its 21st year on Sunday September the 12th. Historically, this event attracts rare and unique cars, and is one of the most popular vehicles displays on the Island event calendar.
Collector car owners and enthusiasts of all makes and vintages are invited to bring their cars to the Avenue to be enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. Cars are placed in sections along 5 blocks of Oak Bay Avenue, Monterey to Mitchell Street plus a portion of Hampshire Rd.
Many of the local restaurants and businesses will be open especially for the event.
No pre-registration is required; exhibitors will enter the Festival near Foul Bay Rd from the West end of Oak Bay Avenue. Registration for car exhibitors is after you have arrived at the entrance starting at 7:00am and is $20. Volunteers will escort cars to their location where they will be on display until 3:00pm.
There will be prizes. Many very colourful rosette ribbons are awarded, such as Policemen’s and Firefighter’s choice, Mayor’s and Ladies’ choice and 11 other categories.
This is a non-profit community event for everyone to enjoy seeing and talking to owners of a diverse collection of locally owned cars.
We are happy to bring back the Oak Bay Collector Car Festival in a safe, outdoor format and ask attendees to be mindful of other’s comfort levels by keeping the recommended 6’ safe distance from each other while enjoying the event.
